Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: database recovery: how does postgres unix work?

Posted by Eric Wolfram on
Thank you everyone! I finally got these system restored and the web site is working again. All the data is there. I had to find old versions of postgres, aolserver and friggin libxml files...make install stuff....cvs complications...what a nightmare -- I should have made some docs when I originally installed everythign (but I was just learning.) I ended up looking for old tar files on the internet and finding old docs for my particular installation in cached google pages and (because the sites that used to hold the docs were down or gone like the dodo bird.) After all the frustration, I was very excited when it actually started -- I almost couldn't believe my eyes...

Couldn't have done it without many of you -- reading your old forum posts, docs and chat logs...thanks. I even found one of my old forum posts, which was surprising.
