PostgreSQL-9.5 failed to boot-up at restart of Linux server

Dear All,
We are upgrading DHIS2 server database (PostgreSQL from 9.3.15 to
9.5.5) and it had been successfully done but the Postgres does not
automatically start after boot-up. I am using: (pg_ctlcluster 9.5 main
start) to start my database but i want it start automatically.

Please can someone help me?

Gerald

Hi Gerald,

we did the upgrade while upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04 and everything starts normally. But you have to manually migrate your 9.3 databases into the 9.5 format - did you do that?

These were the bash commands I recorded back then (at your own risk, no guarantee - do backups and all that first)

~/tomcat-dhis/bin/shutdown.sh
sudo pg_dropcluster 9.5 main --stop
sudo pg_upgradecluster 9.3 main
pg_lsclusters
sudo pg_dropcluster 9.3 main

Hope that helps,

Uwe

There were some issues with the migration so I had to purge the 9.3 and do a fresh installation of 9.5 and restore my backup. But if the server reboot I will have to manually do:
pg_ctlcluster 9.5 main start

Gerald it sounds like it has got into a bit of a mess and maybe you risk just making it worse. It is really not supposed to be this hard, but tit is next to impossible at a distance to figure out what might have gone wrong.

Given that you are not dependent on migrating the cluster, but that you are simply going to restore your dbs, I would advise that you just try and get rid of the current non-working postgres installation completely and install it again.

sudo apt-get purge postgresql … etc (check under /etc and /var/lib that all traces have truly gone)

Sounds like now you are really “waist deep in the big muddy”. You have already had to scrap and reinstall your postgres and it looks like your dhis2-tools package is also somehow missing or damaged.

You have your backups. scrap the machine and rebuild. Follow instruction from https://github.com/dhis2/dhis2-tools.

Given that you are not dependent on migrating the cluster, but that you

are

simply going to restore your dbs, I would advise that you just try and

get

rid of the current non-working postgres installation completely and

install

it again.

sudo apt-get purge postgresql … etc (check under /etc and /var/lib

that

all traces have truly gone)

Mutali,

I think there was an issue where i have postgresql and postgresql-9.5

inside /etc/init.d. But when this command: sudo update-rc.d

postgresql-9.5 enable

I am getting this message "update-rc.d: warning:

Hi Gerald,

you can use this command: sudo update-rc.d postgresql enable

Hope it will work for you.

Hi

Gerald managed to get it all up and working again this afternoon + restoring the dump file (onto 9.5.5). So all good now :slight_smile:

Analytics run time dropped from 56 minutes to 17 minutes, which is equivalent to the time it takes on my laptop, so the upgrade was overdue…

Regards

Sounds like now you are really “waist deep in the big muddy”. You have already had to scrap and reinstall your postgres and it looks like your dhis2-tools package is also somehow missing or damaged.

You have your backups. scrap the machine and rebuild. Follow instruction from https://github.com/dhis2/dhis2-tools.
