Postgresql and rails 4

Posted May 12, 2013 11.6k views
Hi I've noticed tutorials for setting up MySQL but nothing for PostgreSQL. Is it possible to set PG up on DO? Also I want to launch a Rails 4 app. Are there any special instructions for that? I've never done any sys admin.! Not sure about what I need to know or where to find it, just that I'm using pg and rails

We have an article on installing RoR on Ubuntu:

You can follow this article on installing Postgresql on Ubuntu:
createuser: could not connect to database postgres: could not connect to server: No such file or directory
Is the server running locally and accepting connections on Unix domain socket "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432"?

This is the error which i get when i tried to createuser in postgres!
@i Is Postgresql running? sudo service postgresql status

I experienced the same problem above using the Ubuntu 12.04 stack. How do I start the postgres server? Thanks!
Fixed it. The problem is with the locale and not postgres.
