The problem is that postmaster was running. I was able to connect to one of three databases there should have been, but it was empty.
And yes, I was installing Oracle for testing of dotLRN for my school, my own site uses PostgreSQL (or used, now it doesn't exist anymore).
I don't think I had any scripts for AOLserver in rc.d:
[root@swissnet rc6.d]# ls K02postgresql K25squid K49oracle8i K70bcm5820 K86nfslock K03rhnsd K25sshd K50snmpd K72autofs K87portmap K05anacron K30sendmail K50snmptrapd K74apmd K88syslog K05atd K34yppasswdd K50tux K74nscd K90network K05keytable K35smb K50xinetd K74ntpd K92ipchains K10wine K44rawdevices K60crond K74ypserv K92iptables K10xfs K45winbind K60lpd K74ypxfrd K95kudzu K15gpm K46radvd K65identd K75netfs S00killall K20nfs K49listener8i K70aep1000 K80random S01rebootBut I do use svc to control web servers. It's just this was probably the first time I had to reboot the machine...
