    Hello,

    Since a few days (weeks maybe) on two of my servers running PSA 7.5.x and Red Hat 7.3 PostgreSQL isn´t running anymore, rendering Spamassassin useless.

    When i want to start it from the commanline it simply says: [failed[ and when i log in to PlesK and try to start it i get this:
    Reinstalling the packages won´t help either...

    Packagelist:
    postgresql-7.2.4-5.73
    postgresql-server-7.2.4-5.73
    php-pgsql-4.3.10-0

    Has anyone experienced the same problem adn found a solution for this problem?

    Best regards.

    spamassassin is not related to postgresql... What do you get when you try to restart pgsql from command line?

    found the solution

    After an extensive search i´ve found the solution: upgrade to the latest version available for RedHet 7.3.

    First, backup the data:
    then get the packages you need from the PostgresQL website. You need these packages:
    Then install the packages:
    after that, remove the old data:
    and then start PostgresQL:
    The Log in to PlesK to set the administrative user en password and presto! you´re up-and-running again.
