Postgresql 7.3 And Redhat Enterprise 3

Hello,

I've installed redhat enterprise 3 on a system to use as a db server.
Manually I can install and run postgresql 7.3 (the one on the extras
CD). The problem is when you try to add postgres as a service, it
might add it, but it will not start it. To do this, we got a
postgresql script, placed it in the init.d folder with all the other
service shell scripts, and then went into services, add service, and
typed postgres. The specific error received is:

env: /etc/init.d/postgres no directory or file found

Is there some environment variable that needs to be set in some file
somewhere. I read a lot of documentation online, and modified whatever
files that people mentioned, but maybe I'm missing something?

Just to clarify, the server pgsql components are installed. I've done
several fresh installs with all kinds of options either selected or
de-selected. For example, I've installed all client, and server
components at one point.

What baffles me as well is that on Redhat 9.0 it sets up postgres for
you on an install, and automatically adds, and configures it under
services so that it auto starts postgres on a server reboot.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Ah obviously you need to check that execute priveliges are set ..
root

$ chmod +x /etc/init.d/postgresq

1 check you have postgres user and group
2 put export PGDATA=/var/lib/pgsql/data or similar in postgres user
.bash_profile
3 as postgres user run createdb

now does it work?
as root
$ service postgresql start

no ?
in /etc/init.d/postgresql file
check PGVERSION is set to 7.3
explicitly define PGDATA variable as -D parameter

edit $PGDATA/postgresql.conf
you probably neet to set
tcpip_socket = tru

Beside its an opensource and supported by community, what's the fundamental differences between PostgreSQL and those high-price commercial database (and some are bloated such as Oracle) from software giant such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and Sybase? Is PostgreSQL reliable enough to be used for high-end commercial application? Thanks

Or are we all supposed to choose a path of RH Enterprise vs...
