PostgreSQL service won't start!

Postby reallyhappy » Sat Mar 24, 2012 11:07 am

I am having a problem. After i restarted my computer today i loaded up PT4 which hung for a while before telling me postresql wasn't running. I played around stopping/starting/restarting the service but it wouldn't start.

Next i read on here how to re-install and downloaded the latest version (8.4.11-1 for windows 7). The install went fine but after the service still wouldn't start. I have tried restarting the service from Tast Manager, services.msc and also via the start menu > PostrgeSQL 8.4.

Any idea's on how to get this working again? I have never had a problem before and was using my database <5mins before rebooting pc (not due to any updates).

Click Start, type services.msc and click on it when it appears. In the window that shows up, do you see PostgreSQL in the list?
