When following installation instructions for Cygwin, I received the
bash-3.00$ initdb -D ~/pgsql/data/ -W -E LATIN1
fgets failure: No such file or directory
The program "postgres" is needed by initdb but was not found in the
same directory as "/usr/sbin/initdb".
Check your installation.
Many postings claim victory over this error when changing permissions.
It didn't help me:
bash-3.00$ ls -l /usr/sbin/post*
-rwxrwxrwx+ 1 randy Users 2784256 Nov 7 18:31 /usr/sbin/postgres.exe
lrwxrwxrwx 1 randy Users 12 Dec 21 23:17 /usr/sbin/postmaster.exe -> postg
I can run postgres just fine (well without unexpected errors):
postgres does not know where to find the server configuration file.
You must specify the --config-file or -D invocation option or set the PGDATA env
What am I doing wrong? What should I be "checking" in my installation?
