Postgresql doesn't start!

March 24, 2014 2.4k views
As the title says I can't manage to start postgresql daemon on the server. I followed all the advices and instructions of previous users listed in the related page. I also checked that locales are working properly but i still get the "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" error. I KNOW it's because postgresql's daemon is not starting: if i run ps auwx | grep post it shows clearly that postgresql isn't working. And it doesn't start even if I run from root service start! Don't know what to do!

Looks like it is starting but then crashing shortly afterwards. Try checking its error log to see what's going on.
