FAQ
At risk of going off the original subject:

To re-enable root access in Ubuntu, login as your first created user, and
type "sudo passwd root" - type in a new root password, confirm it and bingo,
your root account is ready for direct login, should you need it.

sudo /sbin/service postgresql stop/start

You will need to add your own userid to the sudoers list if it's
not already there.
Just for reference, Ubuntu automatically adds the first user created to
the sudoers file and actually disables the ability to "log in" as root.
