I installed PostgreSQL 8.2.
I want to run PostgreSQL as a service. Usually I would expect that the
user 'postgres' was created by the package installation. However, after
installing PostgreSQL 8.2 in Cygwin I find no user 'postgres' on the system:
bash-4.1$ grep postgres /etc/passwd
So should there have been a 'postgres' user created by the installation?
If not, what are the procedures to setting up PostgreSQL with a server
process user and then running it as a service?
