I'm trying to start my postgres server and it gives me the following errror
FATAL: could not create lock file "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432.lock":
Now obviously to touch the file that the error message is talking about, one
needs root permission that the user account under which my postmaster is
runnnig doesn't have.
Can anyone tell me the fix.
