I updated my postgres from 10 to 14 few weeks ago. The recovery used to work before (restoring the backup on a different postgres server):
- Put the barman backup into the folder
ssh -i ./do.pem email@example.com "docker exec barman_1 barman recover --target-time=$(date --iso-8601=seconds) db latest /var/lib/barman/recovered"
- Copying to the second server
rsync -e "ssh -i ./do.pem" -r firstname.lastname@example.org:/mnt/volume_fra1_01/barman/recovered .
- Overriding the settings
rm -r postgres mkdir -p postgres/14/data mv recovered/* postgres/14/data rm postgres/14/data/postgresql.auto.conf echo "max_connections = '2000'" > postgres/14/data/postgresql.auto.conf
- Docker-compose up
docker-compose up db
- So it used to work (postgres 10 started to copy WAL from barman files) and I had to turn off the recovery mode executing sql command on the db. However with Postgres 14 it doesn't work. Db logs

There is a recovery.signal file in the postgres/14/data folder.
