When I try to install Postgesql, I got this message:
[root@localhost root]# rpm -iv postgresql-7.2.2*
warning: postgresql-7.2.2-1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e
error: Failed dependencies:
postgresql-libs = 7.2.2 is needed by postgresql-7.2.2-1
libpq.so.2 is needed by postgresql-7.2.2-1
After installation, I can't find any files associated with the postgresql. Does anybody know how to start the db? I got this error when running the 'psql' command:
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"?
How do I fix this problem and start the db? In addition, I like to access the db with JDBC. I read the doc on the postgresql.com and still don't understand how to communicate with the db. I already installed JDBC driver, but I don't know how to test it. BTW, I'm planning using JSP application for this db.
got it it running finally. I found a differnet doc from http://www.opennet.ru/docs/HOWTO/Pos...-6.html#ss6.1.
that help me. The reason is that I must install all packages of postgresql. I didn't install postgresql-server-7.2.2-1.i386.rpm at the time. Oh, I don't understand why I must switch user to postgres without adding postgres user. I installed it with root. Is this mean I have to use postgres user everytime I want to work with the db?
