Re: Postgresql 8.1 Backport Bug...

Never mind... this was a PEBCAK error.

I hadn't understood how the configuration structure had changed and had messed it up when moving the data dir.

Changing the symlink from /etc/postgresql/8.1/main/pgdata to point to my new data dir worked perfectly.

Hi All,

I've just installed the Postgresql 8.1 backport on a Debian sarge system for the first time.  I immediately shut it down and changed the database location to our standard location and restarted.

It seems that whenever I try to run " postgresql-8.1 reload" or "postgresql-8.1 stop" it fails as it is unable to find the pid file.

Is there a way to fix this?
