createlang problem

I am trying to get plpgsql running on a redhat 7.3 box.  I have run the command 'createlang plpgsql dbname' on the server.  I know it is there because if I try the command again it gives me this error:  

ERROR: functino plpgsql_call_handler already exists with same argument types
createlang: language installation failed.

Yet when I try to create a function with plpgsql I get the following error:
Number: -2147467259
Description: ERROR: Unrecognized language specified in a CREATE FUNCTION: 'plpgsql'.

Any help will be appreciated.


RE: createlang problem

Have you tried using "createlang --list [your_dbname]"? This will show you which languages PostgreSQL thinks are installed. If it shows plpgsql as being in there, then you might try running "droplang plpgsql [your_dbname]". After this, then you can try running "createlang" again.
