    FATAL: terminating connection due to administrator command


    If user stop postgresql server with "service postgresql stop" or if any SIGINT has been called on the postgresql PID then this error will occur.


    You need to check if there are any processes that are abtuputly killing the PostgreSQL sessions.

    1. In my case, I run postgres container as systemd service, I found out that the unit service is referring to an old invalid container PID. After I regenerate the systemd service file and run it, it was run smooth without hiccups.

      Hope this help.
