Question about postgreSQL
« on: September 04, 2008, 03:59:17 PM »
When I was settingup PostgreSQL, I had trouble figuring out if I was doing the right thing because the setup was not exactly like the tutorial.  Now when I start the service, I see 4 postgres.exe in the task manager process page.  Is this correct?  If not, how do I remove the extra programs?

Second, on the first screen for the setup, it asked for a user name.  I input one with a new password.  This created a new user under the documents and settings folder.  That user had a duplicate of all the data in my documents and settings folder I normally sign in under.  Was that what it was supposed to do?

All of those things do appear to be correct.

I normally have a lot of postgres.exe running. 

With the new user though (I have one as well) it shouldn't have copied all the files (like the My Documents should be empty).  If its populated go ahead and delete it to save yourself some HDD space.
