Understanding PostgreSQL installer debug log

Ramesh Maddi

Hi Team,

 

Can you please help me to understand the PostgreSQL installer’s debug log. I am installing PostgreSQL in CentOS 7.6 system with PostgreSQL binary (postgresql-9.6.6-1-linux-x64.run). I am using the below command to install it in unattended mode.

 

./postgresql-9.6.6-1-linux-x64.run --installer-language en --serviceaccount postgres --servicename postgresqld  --datadir "/home/postgres/" --prefix  "/home/postgres" --superpassword 1234 --serverport 5432 --debuglevel 4 --debugtrace ./postgresql-debug.log --mode unattended

 

 

A debug log file postgresql-debug.log is created in the same directory. But it is in some encoded format which I am not able to decode. Here is the first few lines of the debug log.

We are trying to debug an issue with installation at client’s location and before that we are trying to run debug mode as trial. But looks like this cannot be understood. Before going back to client, we would like to understand how to decode the debug log so that we could trace out the issues at client side.

 

Thanks in advance and appreciate your response. Please consider this as a high priority for us.

I don't think re-sending the message will either lower your priority
nor making someone else reply to you quicker.
