Changing the PostgreSQL Archive Log Directory

If the drive is full, you can change the Archive log directory to a different path. In Linux, you must have read, write and execute (r-w-x) permissions for this directory.

Make sure that this path does not point to pg_log/log and pg_xlog/pg_wal directories.

Use the following steps to change the Archive Log Directory path.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | PostgreSQL.
  2. Right-click the <Instance>, and then click Properties.
  3. In the Archive Log Directory box, type the name of the Archive Log Directory. Alternatively, click Browse to select the path. Generally, the Archive Log Directory is created in the drive or partition that has more free space.
  4. Click OK.

    Note: On a Windows client, if Archive Log Directory is configured as a UNC path, set the value for bAllowUNCForPostgres to true. If you type a UNC path, click Change to provide UNC user account credentials.

    For instructions on adding the additional setting from the CommCell Console, see Adding or Modifying Additional Settings from the CommCell Console.
