The Command used to start DB,
$ pg_ctl start -l /tmp/pglog.txt -D /usr/local/pgsql/data
pg_ctl: another postmaster may be running; trying to start postmaster anyway
pg_ctl: could not start postmaster
Examine the log output.
$



The log file output,

$ cat pglog.txt
FATAL: unrecognized configuration parameter "syslog"
$

You feedbacks are mostly welcome.
