Virtualmin postgresql backup creates language

Is there anyway to configure the backup script to skip dropping and creating a language for a backed up database? If we don't manually edit the postgresql backup file we end up with this error:

pg_restore: [archiver (db)] Error while PROCESSING TOC: pg_restore: [archiver (db)] Error from TOC entry 520; 2612 61755 PROCEDURAL LANGUAGE plpgsql pgsql pg_restore: [archiver (db)] could not execute query: ERROR: language "plpgsql" already exists Command was: CREATE PROCEDURAL LANGUAGE plpgsql;



Are you creating this backup using Virtualmin's domain-level backup, or Webmin's PostgreSQL module?

Also, which PostgreSQL version is your system running?

We're using Virtualmin's domain-level backup, PostgreSQL 9.1.2

I did some research on this, and it seems that if your template1 database already has that language, it can cause this error - see

The fix may be to delete the plpgsql language from the template1 database. I am guessing it doesn't exist by default..

I could fix Virtualmin to ignore these errors during a restore, but only at the cost of having it ignore all errors.

What we did was drop the plpgsql language from the template db. In the future is there anyway you can expose the -e (ignore errors) pg_restore option in the restore script?

Cool, that sounds like the best solution.

The trouble with the -e flag is that it ignores all errors, even those that you might really need to know about, like errors writing to the database.
