Fix a PostgreSQL and Apple Remote Desktop conflict
Authored by: lbundle on Jan 25, '06 02:45:15PM

What generally happens is that when postgresql starts up it creates a file /tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432 if it uses port 5432. In my case ARD would start first, and create this file. Then my postgresql would try to start, but find this file and so (wrongly) assume it has already started and so quits.

I struggled with this for a long time. One bad solution I had was running my database on the ARD instance of postgresql (but ARD only uses version 7.4 :-( ).
