PostgreSQL registers TCP, but not UNIX domain socket

Any ideas why PostgreSQL 8.2 would register a listener for TCP, but not register a UNIX domain socket listener ?

Code: [ Select ]
netstat -ln


I see an entry listening on localhost with port 5432, but there's no mention of "/var/run/postgresql" there.

UNIX domain sockets are all new to me.

Man am I glad to see you Daemonguy.

After some system updates that required a restart, I'm seeing somthing for postgresql in the domain socket list.

Is restarting the system somthing that usually needs to be done when somthing that wants to register a UNIX domain socket has been installed ?

Thanks Joe. ;)

Is it necessary, no. You don't mention what *nix you are using, but while there are commands ... it is far cleaner with the restart . :)

I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop edition, slowing turning things like the desktop manager off as I get more comfortable with SSH.
