    1. What are the ownership and permissions of /var/lib/pgsql supposed to be? I am following the install procedure for postgresql on https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2012/install-postgresql-on-fedora-centos-red-hat-rhel/ and am at step 2.1 for fedora 24

      su – postgres -c /usr/pgsql-9.5/bin/initdb

      which fails with “authentication failure”

      Changing to

      su
      su -c ‘/usr/pgsql-9.4/bin/initdb’ postgres

      fails with “su: failed to execute /var/lib/pgsql: Permission denied”

      the file permissions and ownership are

      sudo ls -alt /var/lib/pgsql
      drwx——. 4 postgres postgres 4096 Oct 5 11:08 .

      Do I have a file permissions/ownership problem or something else?

    2. This guide was extremely helpful installing 9.4. I imagine installing 9.5 on Fedora 24 and above would be similar. Can we get a guide on how to handle migration from 9.4 to 9.5?

      It’d be much appreciated.
