I'm curios on how many people use AWX for their Ansible workloads?
I have a bit of problem with my current test installation as it's postgresql docker keeps restarting and I've been unable to find a solution to it's issue with telling me like below.
[root@awx ~]# docker logs -f fc462c17493f The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "postgres". This user must also own the server process. initdb: directory "/var/lib/postgresql/data/pgdata" exists but is not empty If you want to create a new database system, either remove or empty the directory "/var/lib/postgresql/data/pgdata" or run initdb with an argument other than "/var/lib/postgresql/data/pgdata". The database cluster will be initialized with locale "en_US.utf8". The default database encoding has accordingly been set to "UTF8". The default text search configuration will be set to "english". Data page checksums are disabled.

Haven't found a solution yet via googling so if anyone knows a solution that would fix it without data loss, I'd really be grateful.
Interesting that I apparently can't do a reply to replies I've received at the moment in the thread but I can edit this original question, so adding to original question:
I had to reinstall awx as that env was on an esx being removed and it had this issue anyway. I think the fix was what jlozadad suggested a bit. By default the docker config in ansible deployment of awx inventory settings places the files badly. Thus I fixed the variables in inventory file to point to:
Thanks for the comments.
I am using AWX.
Quite happy with it.
- most of issue I faced was related to disk space
- check carefully when you want to upgrade.
- tag the version to not get a surprise when ever you stop/start your containers.
Your issue could be related to a permission issue or NFS parameter on your persistent volume mount point for postgreSQL.
