NAME

       pg_renamecluster - rename a PostgreSQL cluster

SYNOPSIS

       pg_renamecluster version oldname newname

DESCRIPTION

       pg_renamecluster changes the name of a PostgreSQL cluster, i. e. the name of the config
       directory in /etc/postgresql/version/ along with the data directory in
       /var/lib/postgresql/version/.  Existing log files in /var/log/postgresql/ are also
       renamed.  The cluster is stopped and started for the operation.

       The following postgresql.conf config options are updated to refer to the changed path
       names: data_directory, hba_file, ident_file, external_pid_file, stats_temp_directory.

       Cluster names are a Debian convention, the name is not explicitly known to the cluster
       itself.  From the PostgreSQL viewpoint, the name is merely a substring of various path
       names.

OPTIONS

       None.
