Running Unbutu 11.10.
The power was disconnected from my computer while it was running when I was still able to access localhost/admin/ in my browser prior.
I boot my computer back up and go to the directory where my site is set up and run 'python manage.py runserver' to start Django back up (assuming it also starts PostgreSQL as well). I point to http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin/ in my browser and receive the following message:
Note: I am using port 5433 for PostgreSQL with this Bitnami installation.
Do I need to manually start Postgres? Did I forget to start the daemon? If so, how would I do that? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Okay, so after enough tears poring over why, I figured out what the issues was. PostgreSQL needed to be started manually. And to do this I had to use the following command:
The ./ indicates the directory in which ctl.sh is found (~/Bitnami/djangostack-1.3.1-1/postgresql/scripts/). I hope this solves a lot of headache for other beginners.
