I have an old web-based solution which i need to reinstall to gather some data. Unfortunately it only runs with PG 8.4. So i installed PG 8.4 according to those instructions:
Then i want to check for that server in webmin and it says that the server has not been started. Interestingly enough ps -el shows me four postgres processes.
Also, the postgres 8.4 logfile tells me something of incomplete startup package
My datacenter only allows to use debian 8, or Ubuntu 14.04. I thought Debian would be the better solution but i am open to switch.
I am forced to install this software; so i really appreciate any help.
