move postgresql datadir

How to move PostgreSQL datadir

The context

I run RHEL 7 and CentOS 7 .
The sysadmin team has setup a virtual machine for me and they put a big "/data" partition.
The default PostgreSQL installation usually use "/var/lib/pgsql" for PostgreSQL location.
I want to change it to "/data/pgsql"

How to

Stop PostgreSQL
systemctl stop postgresql

Move  "/var/lib/pgsql" and retain ownership & permissions
rsync -av /var/lib/pgsql /data/

Note: don't remove "/var/lib/pgsql" yet!

Configure "/data/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf" with the new location:
- #data_directory = 'ConfigDir'           
+ data_directory = '/data/pgsql/data'

Configure systemd service file "/usr/lib/systemd/system/postgresql.service"
- Environment=PGDATA=/var/lib/pgsql/data
+ Environment=PGDATA=/data/pgsql/data

Start PostgreSQLand check it all:
# systemctl start postgresql
# systemctl status postgresql
# ps aux | grep pgsql
# su - postgres
$ psql
postgres=#  SHOW data_directory ;
  data_directory
------------------
 /data/pgsql/data

npm run build base-href

Using NPM to specify base-href
When building an Angular application, people usually use "ng" and pass arguments to that invocation.
Typically, when wanting to hard code "base-href" in "index.html", one will issue:

ng build --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo'


I used to build my angular apps through Bamboo or Jenkins and they have a "npm" plugin.
I got the habit to build the application with "npm run build" before deploying it.

But the development team once asked me to set the "--base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo'" parameter.

npm run build --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo


did not set the base href in indext.html

After looking for a while, I found https://github.com/angular/angular-cli/issues/13560 where it says:
You need to use −− to pass arguments to npm scripts. This did the job!
The command to issue is then:

npm run build -- --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo'

dockerfile multiline to file

Outputing a multiline string from Dockerfile
I motsly use a Dockerfile by sourcing from a base ditribution: CentOS or Debian.
But I also have a local mirror and would like to use it for packages installation.

Espacially on CentOS it is about many lines to write to the /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo file.

Easiest way: one RUN per line The first method that comes in mind is to issue one RUN per line to write.
Here you are:

RUN echo "[base] " > /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "name=CentOS-$releasever - Base " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "baseurl=ftp://packages-infra.mg.rktmb.org/pub/centos/7/base-reposync-7 " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "gpgcheck=0 " >>…
