#1004 closed task (wontfix)

note how to get pg db rights back after install

Reported by: hamish Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: minor Milestone: OSGeoLive8.0
Component: Documentation Keywords: 6.0, docs



after installing from the ISO to another user name, the Postgres dbs don't like you anymore. The fix is to open a terminal and do:

sudo su -u postgres createuser --superuser <your_new_login_name>

we should list that somewhere, maybe on the wiki's faq, but perhaps in the "install to *" quickstarts too?


(trac continues to log me out every 15 minutes or so, quite annoying! it has happened twice when creating this ticket.. argh)

hmm there are a number of issues that occur when using a new username.. I agree we could provide improve the process and provide documentation, but this needs a volunteer to take on as a complete task, in my opinion. The right place to document is on a wiki page rather than on the Live, so that instructions are not burned into a release, but instead can improve over time..

Also note that our wiki pages are not very easy to find, and the category and keywords could be better..
