postgresql-X & apache on Mac un-/install, use and issues
I´m trying to get a db working on my Mac. I dont know what I´ve done wrong but my installation of postgresql putted several folders in strange directories, others not named in Manual. I'm sure I done something wrong so i want to uninstall everything and start all over but I'm not sure how.
Can I simply remove everything? Is it something that I should know before installing postgresql again?
And i have another problem. Apache is trying to start postgresql over and over again but getting error every time. I´ve looked on the "Error Console" (?) and the error log i get is:
Pancho-iMac com.apple.launchd (com.edb.launchd.postgresql-9.0): getpwnam("postgres") failed
Ive tried to stop this using launchctl but get error msg: unkown process
How can i stop Apache trying to start Postgresql?

I'm sorry but I don't have practice with iMac.
But the error
It seems that postgresql is not installed correct.
Pleas try to uninstall and install again (after reboot?).
Why apache should starts postgresql?
There is no reason for the apache server to that because apache has nothing to do with postgresql.
Or did you installed the XAMP or XAPP bundle or so?
If yes, pleas refer to the XAMP documentation concerning iMAC / FreeSBD.
Otherwise you can install the independed software apache (and php) and postgresql.
