Copied C9 Workspace with Rails app, PostgreSQL service won’t start: permission denied

Home / Uncategorized / Copied C9 Workspace with Rails app, PostgreSQL service won’t start: permission denied

Question:
I just copied a C9 workspace with a functional Ruby on Rails app, and can’t seem to get the PostgreSQL service running.

running this command:sudo service postgresql start

returns this error:The PostgreSQL server failed to start. Please check the log output:2017-08-15 06:50:57 UTC FATAL: could not remove old lock file "postmaster.pid": Permission denied
2017-08-15 06:50:57 UTC HINT: The file seems accidentally left over, but it could not be removed. Please remove the file by hand and try again.

after deleting this file manual and running again:The PostgreSQL server failed to start. Please check the log output:2017-08-15 07:01:45 UTC FATAL: could not access private key file "/etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key": Permission denied

I’m guessing I need to setup some permission access to PostgreSQL, but I’m not sure how to do that. Any ideas?
