This user must also own the server process.

The database cluster will be initialized with locale "en_US.UTF-8".
The default database encoding has accordingly been set to "UTF8".
The default text search configuration will be set to "english".

WARNING: enabling "trust" authentication for local connections
You can change this by editing pg_hba.conf or using the option -A, or
--auth-local and --auth-host, the next time you run initdb.

Success. You can now start the database server using:

/snap/postgresql96/4/usr/bin/pg_ctl -D /home/jd/snap/postgresql96/common/data -l logfile start

History

#1 Updated by Joshua Drake 11/08/2016 (about 2 years) ago

I would note that this is on a raw, clean VM. (no previous installs of postgresql etc...)

#2 Updated by Joshua Drake 11/09/2016 (about 2 years) ago

As a note, this does work:

/snap/postgresql93/4/usr/bin/postgres -D /home/jd/snap/postgresql93/common/data
