Using Postgres 184.108.40.206 on a new Mac. I installed Postgres from the dmg file that I downloaded from the Postgres site. I then installed PostGIS using stackbuilder. This all worked flawlessly so far as I can tell.
I have tweaked the pg_hba.conf file to trust connections from local and localhost and created a database "db". Then I tried::
Mac-mini:pg postgres$ bin/createlang plpgsql db createlang: language "plpgsql" is already installed in database "db"
so it would appear that postgres knows all about postgis.
When I tried:
Mac-mini:pg postgres$ bin/shp2pgsql -c ~rful011/tmp/weed_boundaries weed_plot_boundaries | psql db Shapefile type: Arc Postgis type: MULTILINESTRING SET SET BEGIN NOTICE: CREATE TABLE will create implicit sequence "weed_plot_boundaries_gid_seq" for serial column "weed_plot_boundaries.gid" CREATE TABLE NOTICE: ALTER TABLE / ADD PRIMARY KEY will create implicit index "weed_plot_boundaries_pkey" for table "weed_plot_boundaries" ALTER TABLE ERROR: function addgeometrycolumn(unknown, unknown, unknown, unknown, unknown, integer) does not exist LINE 1: SELECT AddGeometryColumn('','weed_plot_boundaries','geom','0... ^
I must have missed something but what?
