PGENGINE specifies the location of the engine and utility executable files.
PGPORT specifies the listener port for the database server.
PGDATA specifies the path to the data directory.
PGLOG specifies the location of the log file to which the server writes startup information.
Use the INITDBOPTS variable to specify any initdb option or options that you wish to apply to the new cluster.
You can modify the ppas-9.5 file before invoking the startup script to change the listener port, data directory location, startup log location or installation mode. Note that if you plan to create more than one instance on the same system, you may wish to copy the ppas-9.5 file (and the associated startup script that resides in /etc/init.d), and modify the file contents for each additional instance that resides on the same host.
Please note that the options specified in the service configuration file are only enforced if initdb is invoked via the service command; if you manually invoke initdb (at the command line), you must specify the other options (such as the data directory and installation mode) on the command line.
