When I do on my local machine.
sudo service postgresql start
I usually get the following or some error.
* Starting PostgreSQL 9.1 database server [ OK ]
But when I do it on my server I get no response, not even an error message. Both my local machine and the server are ubuntu 12.04 LTS and both have postgres installed through apt-get. The only difference between the two is that my local machine is 32-bit and the server is 64-bit, but that should not matter. I tried uninstalling and installing, but the same problem occurs. How to I start postgres?
