problem

Mirco Gallazzi

GoodMornig,

I can’t install postgres on my pc because i have Always this error: “ Problem running post-install step. Installation may not complete correctly. The database cluster initialisation failed.”

I looked for a guide that can help me to solve this problem but it was all a big fail.

Itried to create a new user on my pc to create postgres server but nothing. I tried to follow some guides on web/YouTube but nothing.

Can you please help me to solve this problem?

I must need to solve this because in my university they use postgres and i must need this to complete the exam and the project on database.

Thank for patience. Have a good day, mirco

What version of Postgres are you trying to install, and onto what OS?  (I presume Windows 10, but we must be sure.)

Check in your %temp% directory, there should be some bitrock* or bitrock_installer* file, these are setup logs and can point you to the problem.

If initdb failed, you can try running something like this

initdb -D "C:\My\Postgres\Setup\Path" --encoding=UTF8 --locale="Italian, Italy" -W –n

and see if you get some error

(if you are installing an old veresion (<9.3 IIRC) you can have to add -U postgres to have the user Postgres -- that's been removed in last versions -- to be the owner of data directory)

If you point us to the os/postgres versions we could try to be more accurate :-)

Cheers
