    This user must also own the server process.
    The database cluster will be initialized with locale "en_US.utf8".
    The default database encoding has accordingly been set to "UTF8".
    The default text search configuration will be set to "english".

    You can change this by editing pg_hba.conf or using the option -A, or
    --auth-local and --auth-host, the next time you run initdb.

  • Configuring hazelcast on a docker overlay network
  • ansible docker env var not available in container
  • Standalone kubelet persistent disk mount on Google Cloud instance
  • Link Docker containers running on different hosts?
  • Deploying Docker image to Kubernetes
  • Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
