NAME

       pg_dropcluster - completely delete a PostgreSQL cluster

SYNOPSIS

       pg_dropcluster [--stop] cluster-version cluster-name

DESCRIPTION

       This program removes all files that belong to a given PostgreSQL cluster; that includes
       the data directory, the log file, and all configuration files that were created by
       pg_createcluster(1). If the configuration directory (/etc/postgresql/version/cluster) is
       empty after this, it is removed as well.  An empty socket directory other than
       /var/run/postgresql or /tmp is also removed.

       Usually a cluster which still has a running server attached will not be deleted. To
       override this, the --stop option forces a server shutdown before the files are removed.
