Hello Paul (or anyone else),
I've found I still have an account on the dev server.
However, how do I login to the postgres database?
I've tried the normal means of logging into the DB:
psql -U gis gis
and that doesn't work (failed authentication): do I need a password?
Also, is it ok if I import processed_p.shp coastlines (as SQL) and Ordnance Survey LandForm PANORAMA contours to the DB - or would that overload the server?
