Functions not dropped.

P: n/a
I was a little surprised today when I tried to move a production
database on to my test server. The test server already had a copy of
the database so I did

psql -Uadmin template1
drop database admin;
create database admin;

When I tried to reload the production database dump, I got a series of
errors relating to functions. I repeated the exercise but this time did
a \df prior to trying to load the database. In the public schema for the
newly created admin database where all the functions from the old one.
It seems that the drop database doesn't drop all of the functions. Is it
supposed to ? I am using 7.4.2 on FC2.

If it isn't is there a way to clean them all out before the load ?

Any functions/structures/data... in template1 will be moved to the new
database. Then when you try to restore the old one it will conflict.


Thanks you.

That is exactly what had happened. I recall on a previous exercise
loading the database but forgetting to created the admin db first and it
loading the whole lot into template1. I remember cleaning out all the
tables etc, I must have forgotten the functions.

Time to re-init the installation.

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