postgresql error on installation

Postby packets » Sun Oct 17, 2010 3:06 am

This is the first time I gonna install scalix. I just install minimal CentOS 5.5. Now, when I installation scalix, it says it encounter an error when configuring web applications

Code: Select all

-> Confirm password:
Configuring PostgreSQL...   
Fatal error occured: Msg: An error occurred configuring Web applications -- check the log for errors.
Scalix Installer - cleaning up...
Scalix Installer - done.

I check the logs and below is the error:

Code: Select all

2010-10-17 07:01:11,029 INFO Setting JAVA_HOME environment variable to /usr/java/jre1.5.0_21
2010-10-17 07:03:00,193 INFO Configuring PostgreSQL...
2010-10-17 07:03:23,655 ERROR Operation failed: Failed to set password for the 'scalix' database user.

I'm not really familiar with postgresql. As a matter of face, I never use it at all. MySQL is my choice of RDBMS since I was exposed to linux and now I'm stuck with this one. I tried to command psql but it encountered an error:

Code: Select all

[root@techbreakfast log]# postgresql
-bash: postgresql: command not found
[root@techbreakfast log]# psql
psql: FATAL:  database "root" does not exist

I'm totally lost. Any help anyone?
