Unable to createuser < createuser lou -d -A > in Postgresql-client.
My first venture into PGSQL and tried various combinations several times.
Probably doing something very wrong, or leaving out something important.
Following instructions here's what happens:
1. $ su - postgres
2. $ password
3. $ xxxxxxxxx
su: Authentification failure
# [ after many unsuccessful tries I innovated and ]
# [ did a plain su w/password and became root ]
# [ and proceeded ]
4. su - postgres
5. No directory, logging in with HOME=/
6. postgre at debian:/$ createuser lou -d -A
7. psql: connectDBStart( ) -- connect ( ) failed: Connection refused
Is Postmaster running locally and accepting connections on Unix socket
8. createuser: creation of user "lou" failed.
# [ exited and did a < ps > and don't see Postmaster running (only the
terminal and ps)
