Trying to install Postgresql

July 16, 2013 2.8k views
Hello, I installed a version of Postgresql correctly, but when I try to access "psql", I am getting de following error: "psql: 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"?" Anyone could help me, please? Thanks.

I do not why, but I just needed to create a cluster, with the following command: "pg_createcluster". I hope this helps another people.

What do you mean by "when I try to access '"psql"'? What commands are you using?
Sorry, I'm gonna explain with more details, I use "sudo su postgres", after that I try to use "psql".
