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?

Sorry, I’m gonna explain with more details, I use “sudo su postgres”, after that I try to use “psql”.

What do you mean by <mark>"when I try to access ‘“psql”’</mark>? What commands are you using?

I do not why, but I just needed to create a cluster, with the following command: “pg_createcluster”. I hope this helps another people. <br> <br>Thanks.
