Hi Jayadevan,<br>
After installing pgsql 9 and dumping an existing database,<br>
I was able to run the psql command and run sql queries as<br>
Today when I gave the psql command I came across this error.<br>
<font color="#cc0000">psql: could not connect to server: No such file
or directory<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Is the server running locally and accepting<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; connections on Unix domain socket "/tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432"?</font><br>
Can you please help me to run the pgsql.<br>

postgres=# select version();
give you version as 9?
