If I try to run the
postgres command, I get:
2020-12-29 00:14:53.213 GMT  LOG: skipping missing configuration file "/usr/local/pgsql/data/postgresql.auto.conf" postgres: could not find the database system Expected to find it in the directory "/usr/local/pgsql/data", but could not open file "/usr/local/pgsql/data/global/pg_control": No such file or directory
How can I find out what config file is telling postgres to look at /usr/local/pgsql/data?
In my case, postgres was installed on OSX via Homebrew.
