How do you do this for a RH system? I'm a newbie having trouble understanding the manual instructions...
I added this line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana,Arial,Helvetica">code:</font><HR><pre>nohup su -c 'postmaster -D /usr/local/pgsql/data > server.log 2>&1' postgres &
Won't this do the trick or do I need to do this?:
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana,Arial,Helvetica">quote:</font><HR>On RedHat Linux add a file /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgres.init which is based on the example in contrib/linux/. Then make a softlink to this file from /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S98postgres.init.
In contrib/linux there are two files postgres.init.csh and postgres.init.sh -- which one should I use?

- Because you are a Linux Redhat user
- Getting Postgresql to start can be a "pain"
- Unless your system administrator "inisist"
you should install PostGresql via
the postgresql.tar.gz file
- Then you should install Postgresql using
-This should fix any problems you have with the /etc/rc.d issue you are having
-Checkout www.rpmfind.net for the Postgresql RPM.
