This is ridiculous. I started installing metasploit last night but was extremely tired so I didn't finish. The last thing I did was run these two commands as instructed:
groupadd -g 209 postgres
useradd -u 209 -g 209 -d /var/lib/pgsql postgres
Today I realized that I didn't actually want to do this so I attempted to remove the user and group both names postgres. However, I can't remove the group because the user is using it, and I can't remove the user because the user is used by process 1919. Ok, so let's kill the process:
Then try to delete the user again. No such luck. Apparently the process is automatically restarted on a different PID. Fine:
Nope, process just restarts on a new PID. Herm...
The processes name is: postgres msf3 msf3 127.0.0.1(60397)idle. I try killall with that whole process name.
I try killall postgres, killall msf3, killall postgres msf3 msf3. No processes found. How do I murder this process?
EDIT: WOW, my apologizes. I found it using pstree -p. The process was postgres.bin and I killed that using
Sorry for wasting forum space.
