Okay, we are probably going to need a little more information than
this.  For example: What version of PostgreSQL are you running?  What
platform are you running it on?  Did you install from source, or did
you use someone else's precompiled binaries?  What does the log file

Generally speaking most PostgreSQL users use some sort of init script
to make sure that PostgreSQL starts, we certainly don't start it from
the command line like you see at the bottom of the postmaster(1) man
page.  In fact there is an entire program 'pg_ctl' that is
specifically designed to do this.  On my debian system I start
PostgreSQL with a command like:

/etc/init.d/postgresql start

And when I used RedHat's RPMs (a long time ago) they had something

Give us a little more information and we will get your server back up
and running.
