Starting the PostgreSQL Server for Surround SCM

Article ID: 679  |  Last updated: 06 Jun, 2017

The following information tells you how to start the PostgreSQL Server if it was installed with Surround SCM.


The PostgreSQL Server is installed as a service and starts automatically.


A PostgreSQL folder is created in the /Library/StartupItems directory. The PostgreSQL script calls the server to start automatically.

To prevent the server from starting automatically, move the PostgreSQL folder from the /Library/StartupItems directory to a different location. To turn the automatic startup back on, move the PostgreSQL folder back to the directory.


The PostgreSQL startup script is in the /usr/bin directory. Use the following command to call the script and start the PostgreSQL Server:

sppostgres start

Note: You can set PostgreSQL to start automatically on Linux during installation.
