Setting up postgresql-9.1 (9.1.11-0ubuntu0.13.10) ...
 * Starting PostgreSQL 9.1 database server                                       * The PostgreSQL server failed to start. Please check the log output:
2013-12-13 05:53:29 MST FATAL:  private key file "server.key" has group or world access
2013-12-13 05:53:29 MST DETAIL:  File must be owned by the database user or root, must have no write permission for "group", and must have no permissions for "other".
invoke-rc.d: initscript postgresql, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing postgresql-9.1 (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)” I have set the file permissions and tried doing “apt-get purge postgresql" but nothing is resolved. I don’t know what is going on here but I don’t want to be getting that error every time I upgrade or install or remove software from my server. does anyone know how I could resolve this? thanks.

PS. I also did dpkg -r postgresql and all though it said that postgresql is fully removed, it’s not when I do “apt-get upgrade”.
