    Default Cannot start postgresql in BA server

    HI All,

    Cannot start postgresql , below is the error , Can one help me to know how can we solve this .

    pg_ctl.bin: another server might be running; trying to start server anyway
    waiting for server to start........
    pg_ctl.bin: this data directory appears to be running a pre-existing postmaster
    stopped waiting
    pg_ctl.bin: could not start server
    Examine the log output.
    /usr/local/pentaho50/postgresql/scripts/ : postgresql could not be started

    Thanks a lot

    Another server might be running. That could be it. Have you checked whether you have another postgres server running on that machine?
