[Bug 1498274] Re: init.d script doesn't respect `version` argument


Hi Eoghan,

Can you explain how do you see both 9.4 and 9.3 are started? Which command or logs are you using or checking?

You state you are running on Ubuntu 15.04 which did not ship with
Postgres 9.3, can you explain how you got postgresql 9.3 on this Ubuntu

  init.d script doesn't respect `version` argument

Status in postgresql-common package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Release: Ubuntu 15.04

  It seems that the current version of the /etc/init.d/postgresql script
  doesn't respect the `version` flag.  Help text states:

      Usage: /etc/init.d/postgresql {start|stop|restart|reload|force-
  reload|status} [version ..]

  But with 2 installations and called as follows:

      /etc/init.d/postgresql start 9.4


     service postgresql start 9.4

  Both 9.4 and 9.3 are started, I expected just 9.4 to start.

  # apt-cache policy postgresql-common
