Re: Fedora Core 4 Upgrade hosed Postgresql

Can you tell me how to do a pg_dump when the server wont start? It complains about data in an earlier format... Tar up data directory and move it???

Any help is appreciated..

postgresql does not update it's db files. They are most likely not hosed
but rather still in earlier format. If you can move them to another
computer using the same version of postgresql that you were using, you
should be able to then pg_dump all the data and them load it into the
newer version. That is the way postgresql has always worked.

You should be regularly 'dumping' your data from any sql db as a backup
whether it is mysql, postgresql or ???

You should be backing up your data prior to any OS 'upgrade'

I did the same thing myself in upgrading Fedora Core 2 to Fedora Core 4
but I did have a pg_dump file that was a few days old.
