CLEARDBDIR(UNIX)            PostgreSQL           CLEARDBDIR(UNIX)

NAME
       cleardbdir - completely destroys all database files

SYNOPSIS
       cleardbdir

DESCRIPTION
       cleardbdir  destroys  all  the database files.  It is used
       only by the Postgres super-user before re-initializing the
       entire   installation   for  a  particular  site.   Normal
       database users should never use this command.

       The Postgres super-user should ensure the postmaster  pro-
       cess is not running before running cleardbdir.
