Database problem with Resolve 8 on Mac Pro
on Feb 16, 2013 at 7:50:08 pm

Hi,

I have followed the steps below as said but upon reinstall and restart, I still get the "No database connected!" whilst loading. After Davinci starts up, I get prompted to create a database basically the database manage window pops up blank with the options to "create new" "Connect" "Optimize" "Backup" "Restore" "Cancel" I have followed the steps below 3 times now and each time the same thing. Please someone help me, am a newbie to Resolve :(

Many Thanks

On some machines we've seen the database installation fail, and this causes the database to not start up properly.

A fix for this requires a few command for you to type on the terminal. This will uninstall the database, so the next install of Resolve will install it properly.

Before you run these it's important to make sure you don't have any data or resolve projects saved in your postgres database.

1) Stop the server
sudo /sbin/SystemStarter stop postgresql-8.4
2) Remove menu shortcuts:
sudo rm -rf /Applications/PostgreSQL 8.4
3) Remove the ini file
sudo rm -rf /etc/postgres-reg.ini
4) Removing Startup Items
sudo rm -rf /Library/StartupItems/postgresql-8.4
5) Remove the data and installed files
sudo rm -rf /Library/PostgreSQL/8.4
6) Delete the user postgres
sudo dscl . delete /users/postgres

Now, re-install Resolve, reboot, and then start Resolve.

Hope this helps!

Can you upgrade to 9.1.1? It will use a disk database by default.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. Budget wouldn't permit me to upgrade at the moment. Any other work around this?
