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.
