Starting the PostgreSQL Server

Article ID: 679  |  Last updated: 23 Dec, 2014

Following are references on how to start the PostgreSQL Server if it has been installed with Surround SCM.


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

Mac OS X

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 can be found in the /usr/bin directory. Use the following command line to call the script and start the PostgreSQL Server:

sppostgres start

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