I'm surprised that installing postgresql on ubuntu doesn't give me a working postgres server setup immediately: it requires additional steps:
Setting up postgresql-common (154) ... * No PostgreSQL clusters exist; see "man pg_createcluster" Setting up postgresql-9.3 (9.3.4-1) ... update-alternatives: using /usr/share/postgresql/9.3/man/man1/postmaster.1.gz to provide /usr/share/man/man1/postmaster.1.gz (postmaster.1.gz) in auto mode * No PostgreSQL clusters exist; see "man pg_createcluster" Setting up postgresql (9.3+154) ...
I've seen similar behaviour in the past, where the installer failed to create a default cluster (I thing) because some locale setting was missing but I think I have these setup correctly.
Is it new (and therefore correct) that an additional step is required on Ubuntu 14.04? Or is something (silently) broken?
All of this is happening on a fresh DigitalOcean 14.04 VPS.
