REINDEX problem


the maintainance chapter in the docs gave me the impression that a
reindex of some tables would be a good idea. Last night I took the
database down, started up in single user mode and tried to reindex.

The reindex of tables did work fine, but a reindex of the database
did not. Please see a session transscript below.

How can I reindex the database?



-bash-2.05b$ postgres -D /var/lib/pgsql/data/ -O -P CLIX1
LOG: database system was shut down at 2004-08-12 22:55:29 CEST

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)

The database name is evidently all upper case, so you need double
