PostgreSQL failed to start

    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...


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

    Best regards.

    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.
