Then an easy way is likely to look at the init script that starts it, or use 
ps auxwww |grep postmaster to have a look at how it was started.  The last 
command will likely yield something that looks like this:

postgres  3026  0.0  0.3  20064  3176 ?        S    08:21   0:00 /usr/bin/postmaster -p 5432 -D /var/lib/pgsql/data

Which means the data directory is /var/lib/pgsql/data.

>>> database, but I can find the directory where the database are kept. How
>>> do I find where the postgresql database directory is from a command
>>> line?
