Instalé pero no funcionará

Acabo de instalar Postgres.aplicación on my Mac but it won't work properly. I finished the installation and the app icon is on the menu bar and it says it is listening on port 5432, however, that is what happens if I try to run it from the command-line:

~ $ psql
zsh: correct 'psql' to 'sl' [nyae]? n
zsh: command not found: psql

I had previously installed PostgreSQL via Homebrew but removed it before installing I am running Mac OS X Lion.

I appreciate any help, I really want to have PostgreSQL running on my machine.

Programas de psql binary for is inside the application bundle and you'll have to add the appropriate directory to your PATH. Desde fino manual:

Configure su $PATH includes many command line tools. If you want to use them, you must configure the $PATH variable.

Si está utilizando golpear (default shell on OS X), add the following line to ~/.bash_profile:

I'm reading this as of April 2014 and the directory you must include in your path as far as my Postgres app is concerned is slightly different.

I had to include this:

What you should do it use /latest instead of version so you dont need to change it again when updating Postgres.

This might seem stupid, but I'm curious where you installed As was suggested in mu is too short's answer, the documentation mentions adding /Applications/ to your path. However, this requires that you have installed in your /Applications/ carpeta.

Before trying any of the more complicated solutions you might have found on Stack Overflow, and other resources via Google, you should make sure you've installed to the right place. It may be as simple as moving to /Applications/ desde psql se encontrará en /Applications/ before any other places.

Alternatively, you could use whatever path to you would like. So if you want it in your home directory, then you could use export PATH="~/$PATH".

I'm a previous Ubuntu user, now in OSX Trying to run the "which sql" and "pg_restore" commands directly from a terminal I opened didn't work. I clicked on the elephant icon and opened a terminal by "Open psql". Once I've quit from the psql console and written the commands in that terminal, they all worked.

On ZSH terminal, before trying the above solutions you have to install Postgres in the first place. While using Hombrew First, hit,

brew install postgres Then check if it is installed by which psql

Respondido el 15 de Septiembre de 19 a las 11:09 recommends removing any postgres installations that were installed via brew. This way there's no conflicting servers or services running, but then you lose out on the cli tooling. To be honest though I'm installing it back via brew so I can quickly access my tooling, but realize that I need to: Make sure the versions match up, make sure to determine which postgres I would like to be running as a service (brew's or postgressapp's). - CTS_AE
