PostgreSQL now comes with Server on 10.8+. However, postgres seems to require restarting often. How can I keep postgres running without having to restart it so often?

What do you mean require restarting often? I've never had that problem. –  Enrico Susatyo Sep 7 '12 at 6:27

If I don't hit the database for a while, postgres shuts down. It works fine after I do a "sudo serveradmin start postgres" but I have to do that quite often. –  Erik Sep 7 '12 at 6:40
    
I have 10.8.2 with server and I don't see PostgreSQL as an option. Where is it? –  user34600 Nov 12 '12 at 22:33

Not sure if it's the same in Mountain Lion Server, but perhaps this will help:
