HI
I am running Postgres on Fedora 14 64 bit using the following command:
> service postresql start

I would like to know how to set database to single-user mode in order to run an upgrade process on database, and return it back to regular mode when upgrade process finish.

Thanks

One way to do this is to shut down the server and start a single-user PostgreSQL server with the -P option included on its command line.

My bad.... -D not P please see below:

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.3/static/app-postgres.html

"To start a single-user mode server, use a command like

postgres --single -D /usr/local/pgsql/data other-options my_databaseProvide the correct path to the database directory with -D, or make sure that the environment variable PGDATA is set. Also specify the name of the particular database you want to work in. "
