I keep getting this error when trying to migrate to my postgres database. help would be much appreciated!

I had the same problem using the Postgres.app from Heroku. Rebooting my Mac solved it.

To cater to these situations, this blog will cover some common errors and warnings in PostgreSQL. In some cases, it is a user setting problem or query error, but in other cases, it can be a PostgreSQL bug.

Restarting postgresql works.

To restart if you've installed it using homebrew, brew info postgresql will tell you to:

launchctl unload ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql.plist
launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql.plist

Check your PostgreSQL version before using it. Sometimes, a PL/pgSQL function is so big that makes it more difficult to detect the bugs.

Try restarting the server. I updated Postgresql through Homebrew but forgot to restart the server and got this same problem. I believe it's due to the client and server versions not matching. psql started with:

$ psql
psql (9.1.4, server 9.1.2)

I don't think I deserve any points for that but rebooting my Postgres.app (which is better than rebooting the whole system) solved it for me. The app doesn't show up on the Dock, you can find it on the navbar at the top of your window. Hope it helps anyway.

Comments
  • The command SET time zone 'UTC' works in my PostgreSQL 9.1.4 installation.
  • What PostgreSQL version are you using? Does SET time zone 'UTC' work in a psql console for you?
  • I'm using 9.1.4 where/how do I enter SET time zone 'UTC'?
  • Jupitor=# SET time zone 'UTC'; ERROR: invalid value for parameter "TimeZone": "UTC"
  • Postgres (v.9.2.4) doesn't like UTC, use 'GMT' instead.
  • Really weird, tried restarting the app and setting the time zone. Neither worked, then rebooted mac and boom, no issues.
  • I had this problem after reinstalling postgress via brew. Restarting mac helped.
  • restarting postgresql after upgrade fixes issue "pg_ctl restart"
  • restarting postgres worked for me as well. My error was ERROR: invalid value for parameter "TimeZone": "America/Chicago" though. Just thought i'd add this comment because I wasted time searching for this error message not realizing that it also happens for UTC
  • I honestly can't believe it, but this actually worked.
  • That's right, this happens because PostgreSQL was upgraded but not restarted.
  • Thanks, I would have been surprised if a reboot had really been the only answer.
  • for brew you can restart even easier with brew services restart postgresql or if you use a specific version, something like brew servces restart postgresql@9.6
  • This tip saved me a reboot. Thanks!
