How to configure postgres-11 for use with golang
I hope asking for help in this issue is allowed on the bugtracker since this is in my opinion a documentation issue.
I installed the postgres-11 package and the golang package. Problem is I can't find information on how to configure them to work toghether so I can start working on some html5 application. I even tried to follow a guide made for Linux at https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/ubuntu-postgresql-installation/ but that lead me to https://web.archive.org/web/20090416193812/http://wikis.sun.com/display/OpenSolarisInfo/Changing+root+User+Behavior which I don't know if is advisable to do or not. 'psql' command starts up but says the postgresql server isn't running. 'svcs' command doesn't display any service resembling a postgresql service, mabe I didn't install everything that was needed to be installed? The internet may as well be a blank on this issues.

I have to say I found out that there is extensive documentation on the Postgresql documentation website about how to setup a database on various operating systems. I assume it also applies to illumos/OpenIndiana. Someone may want to close this issue.
