I installed Postegresql and added a database which I was using as part of a local server. However, I restarted the computer and my Postgresql database seems to be gone. The Postegresql documentation says that the data should be placed in /usr/local/pgsql/data however I did not do this and this directory is empty on my system. Also, I cannot find a postgresql config file so I am not sure where Postgreql may have been putting my databases.
Has this happened to anyone before? If so, is there a way to recover my databases? Fortunately these databases are not so old that there is irrevocable memory loss but i would prefer to recover my data if possible.
If I can't find my data I will need to restart /recreate my data although I would prefer not to. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
thanks, zach cp
