OperationalError: FATAL: could not open relation mapping file "global/pg_filenode.map": Permission denied

How can I fix this ? 

I think it has to do with the user rights, that one directory has the wrong userrights or something?

Hello !

Check the permission and the Owner of the `/var/lib/postgresql/9.3/main/global/pg_filenode.map` file

you can check it with the postgres user only. It should be somewhat like below. 

 ls -al /var/lib/postgresql/9.3/main/global/pg_filenode.map

-rw------- 1 postgres postgres 512 Jun 25 2015 /var/lib/postgresql/9.3/main/global/pg_filenode.map

these in the /var/lib/postgresql are all on user odoo, shouldn't they be postgres?
