    I noticed when running the "top" command that postmaster was running from the user postgres and that is associated with PostgreSQL which I don't even use.

    30302 postgres 16 0 16740 524 160 S 0 0.2 0:06.97 postmaster
    30311 postgres 22 0 7540 612 4 S 0 0.2 0:00.20 postmaster
    30312 postgres 18 0 6548 408 4 S 0 0.1 0:01.25 postmaster

    Is there a way to safely stop the service without uninstalling it?

    Regards,
