psql: could not connect to server: No such file or directory

 psql: could not connect to server: No such file or directory
    Is the server running locally and accepting
    connections on Unix domain socket "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432"?


 If you are trying to open command prompt of postgresql using command psql and it gives above error it means your postgresql server is not started, you need to start it first.
service postgresql start
If it is giving error postgresql: unrecognized service, it means you are not starting correct service, you need to verify the correct name of the service.
Is it postgresql-9.3 or postgresql-9.4 or postgresql-8.4?

Now restart it after confirmation.
service postgresql-9.3 start
or
service postgresql-9.4 start
or
service postgresql-8.4 start
