When i try to connect to my postgres database, i get the error below:

could not connect to server: Connection timed out (0x0000274C/10060) Is the server running on host "" and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432?

I make a ssh connection to the machine which runs postgres service, i get the error like below :

[omerkaraca@btpsndsrpg01 bin]$ systemctl start postgresql.service

[omerkaraca@btpsndsrpg01 bin]$ service postgresql start 9.6
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start  9.6 postgresql.service

How can i restart the postgresql service?
