How to start PostgreSQL in TCL?
« on: April 04, 2017, 06:48:21 AM »
Hi all,

1. I've just installed PostgreSQL 9.5.1. However, I'm not sure to start the service on TCL. Please advise.
Code: [Select]
tc@box:/$ psql -V
psql (PostgreSQL) 9.5.1
tc@box:/$
tc@box:/$ df -h | g sql
/dev/loop9                3.6M      3.6M         0 100% /tmp/tcloop/postgresql-9.5.1
tc@box:/$
tc@box:/$ psql
psql: could not connect to server: No such file or directory
        Is the server running locally and accepting
        connections on Unix domain socket "/tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432"?
tc@box:/$

2. When I search for sql, there is no option for MySQL. May I know why? Thanks.
Code: [Select]
tc@box:/$ tce

Thanks Gerald.

There is useful information on mariadb.tcz info file. I would recommend we do the same on postgresql-9.5.1.tcz.

Try the Postgresql website. It's no different in TCL than any other distro.

For persistance update your path and library cache:

Add /usr/local/pgsql95/bin to your path in ~/.profile
Add /usr/local/pgsql95/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf (and add this file to /opt/.filetool)

This way you will be able to use psql without having to use full paths.

Once you get your database created add the following to your /opt/bootlocal.sh:

/usr/bin/sudo "PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/pgsql95/bin" "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/pgsql95/lib" -u tc /usr/local/pgsql95/bin/pg_ctl -D /path/to/my/db -l /path/to/my/db.log start
