Error on postgres:9.6.3-alpine



Hi everyone,
Today I’m getting the following error when trying to run a build

Exited with code 1The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user “postgres”.
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”.

Data page checksums are disabled.

This happens in Container circleci/postgres:9.6.3-alpine

Until yesterday night, everything was properly working.

Any ideas what is going on here?

Thanks and have a nice day


That’s certainly something we’ll need to fix! In the meantime, I recommend going into your previous builds and using the sha specified in the Spin up Environment step.



We just pushed a fix, so the image should be ok now. We are sorry for the issue. If not fixed, please let us know.


Thanks guys, problem solved.
