Re: FATAL: lock file "postmaster.pid" already exists

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



We only use one database, not counting the
built-in template databases.  The server is
running 9.1.3.  We were running 9.1.1 until
fairly recently.

We are still getting set up to test this on
non-virtual hardware, but hope to have results
from that in a few hours or less.

[ scratches head... ]  If you aren't using any tablespaces, there should
be only *one* pgsql_tmp directory, which makes this even more confusing.

(Unless you're using a pre-8.3 release, in which case there would be one
per database, so maybe if you've got hundreds/thousands of databases in
the cluster that would explain it.  But I sure hope you're not still
using pre-8.3, especially not on Windows.)
