I am new to Ubuntu and I would like to know how to make postgresql start automatically on boot and how to configure my setup so that I can start the postgres server if need be.
I am working on a small rails project and I have been having difficulties with postgres starting correctly. I have had to resort to uninstalling and reinstalling postgres to just get the project up and running just to get work done. I have been using these commands.
sudo apt-get -y update
sudo apt-get purge postgresql* # ending * is important
sudo apt-get install postgresql libpq-dev
from this post
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pitti/postgresql
as it appears it is out of date and there's a comment below about not needing it.
If it helps my pg_hba.conf file appears to be located at
I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on top of chrome os
Thanks all for the help and sorry for the newb question!
