not connecting with postgres - getting error - role alfresco_db does not exists;

Jump to solution

Hello.
I am trying to implement https://github.com/loftuxab/alfresco-ubuntu-install on my ubuntu system and It seems quite simple but its not connecting with postgres so repository not starting up.
I have updated postgreql.sh script and replaced values for ALFRESCODB=alfresco and ALFRESCOUSER=alfresco with ALFRESCODB=alfresco_db and ALFRESCOUSER=alfresco_db and ran this script (asked me for the password and I have entered "admin" for the same) and because of this, the database with "alfresco_db" name created automatically with the password "admin".
then I have updated alfresco-global.properties file for the same.
I have replaced db.username=alfresco , db.password=alfresco and db.name=alfresco
with db.username=alfresco_db , db.password=admin and db.name=alfresco_db
and started alfresco service but getting exception in initializing repository and getting below errors in the end

It seems that your Postgres user is not created by the script.

Did you set the "createdb" variable to "y"?

yes.. Thanks alot. It was a version issue. I have installed postgres manually and tried to connect. I have uninstalled it and tried via script and it worked.

Screenshot from 2020-01-13 12-37-04.pngI have found nothing (errors or exceptions ) on console logs (catalina.out) but noticed that the line says connected to the databse is missing in logs catalina.out .I think its not connecting with database. Please guide.

Thank you.

Hi @monicakumari,

It might be better if you raise this subsequent issue as a new post - with a reference to the original post if required - because people see the Solved icon & assume everything is ok.
