Have you located the Postgres log yet? ISTM that that's where you need to be looking.
Ray, Yes ... and no. I think that I turned on all the right switches in postgresql.conf, but the logging is displayed to stdout rather than to syslog. I have a /var/log/postgresql but that has a few entries from last December and nothing since. I can post the .conf file to learn what I set incorrectly (or didn't set when it should be). I also changed bytea_encoding to 'escape' from 'hex', stopped and restarted the postmaster, and there's no change. In C and python I'd be putting little stub code to print in the function with the problems so I can tell just where I am when it fails. I've no idea of how to do this in php, or where it would be appropriate to insert code to generate diagnostics. Thanks, Rich
