I am fairly new to Linux and I have question regarding users. When I use the
useradd command I don't specify a password. I must use the
passwd command afterwards. Does this mean that the user is disabled until it is done?
I installed Postgresql with the
apt-get command. Do I have to create a postgres-user and change ownership of the installed postgresql files? Or is this taken care of by the
I see that the owner of some of the files is already
postgres. However, how do I run the server as
postgres? I don't know the password. Trying to do
su postgres fails because of authentication failure.
