Skip down for instructions on Deleting a PostgreSQL tablespace.
Should it become necessary to rebuild a tablespace from scratch,
you can use the
command in SVRMGRL with the
cascade option. This command will drop the
user and every database object the user owns.
drop user $OPENACS_SERVICE_NAME cascade;
If this does not work because svrmgrl "cannot drop a user that is currently connected", make sure to kill the AOLserver using this user. If it still does not work, do:
select username, sid, serial# from v$session where lower(username)='$OPENACS_SERVICE_NAME';
alter system kill session 'sid, serial#';
where sid and serial# are replaced with the corresponding values for the open session.
Use with caution!
If you feel the need to delete everything related to the service, you can also issue the following:
drop tablespace $OPENACS_SERVICE_NAME including contents cascade constraints;
Dropping a PostgreSQL tablespace is easy. You have to stop any
AOLserver instances that are using the database that you wish to
drop. If you're using daemontools, this is simple, just use the
'down' flag (-d). If you're using inittab, you have to
comment out your server in
/etc/inittab, reread the inittab with
/sbin/init q, and then
Then, to drop the db, just do:
dropdb $OPENACS_SERVICE_NAMEDROP DATABASE
