Unanswered: What permissions or rights does PostgreSQL need to run?
I am running PostgreSQL v.8.0.3 and I have been trying to get a web page to interact with my newly created database. I have had no luck so far in doing so. Thinking that it somehow could just be a permissions/rights issue, I started messing with the ownership of the database directories and the postgreSQL config files. Now I can't get the postgresql service to start, it just says:
Starting postgresql service: [FAILED]
when I try and start it up. I *know* that I should have taken notes when I started modifying settings at it, as I normally do on everything else that I usually work on..., and I will in the future.
Can anyone explain the basic running "structure" of PostgreSQL and what the permissions are "supposed to be" on an unmodified server? Thanks in advance,
