I am running PostgreSQL on a Mac 10.10
PostgreSQL 9.3.5 on x86_64-apple-darwin12.5.0, compiled by Apple LLVM version 5.1 (clang-503.0.40) (based on LLVM 3.4svn), 64-bit
I am having trouble connecting to the _postgres Mac account. As far as I remember, the under Mac created account is not postgres but _postgres. I want to log in as that account to access Postgres and create a new role/database for some user on the system.
sudo -u _postgres psql
Throws me this:
psql: FATAL: role "_postgres" does not exist
sudo -u postgres psql
gives me this:
sudo: unknown user: postgres
So, how to login as the default Postgres user?!
