I think a related problem is that the default log directory is called "pg_log", which is very similar to those other two. There is no quick way to tell their meaning apart. I would consider changing the default from "pg_log" to "log". Then we'd also be at the point where we can say, everything starting with "pg_" is internal, don't touch it. -- Peter Eisentraut http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
