PostgreSQL packages for Debian

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group (PGDG) maintains a apt repository of PostgreSQL packages for Debian located at http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/. We aim at building PostgreSQL server packages as well as extensions and modules packages on several Debian releases for all PostgreSQL versions supported.

Currently, we support

  • Debian 6.0 (squeeze), 7.0 (wheezy), and unstable (sid)
  • PostgreSQL 8.3, 8.4, 9.0, 9.1, 9.2
  • Several third-party extensions such as Slony-I, various PL languages, and datatypes.

We plan to also add support for Ubuntu. Packages for older PostgreSQL versions and older Debian distributions will continue to stay in the repository; updates for those will be provided on an ad-hoc basis.


Import the repository key from http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ACCC4CF8.asc:

wget -O - http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ACCC4CF8.asc | sudo apt-key add -

Edit /etc/apt/sources.list (replace squeeze with the actual distribution you are using):

deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/ squeeze-pgdg main

Update the package lists:

apt-get update

Have a look at the FAQ.


  • 2012-10-13: Repository key renewed with new expiry date.
  • 2012-10-02: Minor releases 9.2.1, 9.1.6, 9.0.10, 8.4.14, 8.3.21 built
  • 2012-09-15: 9.2.0 is in the repository
  • 2012-08-22: PostgreSQL in Debian Hackathon: Blog posting and notes. The distribution names changed from *-pgapt to *-pgdg, please update your sources.list.
  • 2012-06-07: 9.2 added, Lenny marked unsupported now
  • 2012-06-07: separate components "9.0", "9.2" etc added for libpq5/libpg-dev/lib... packages that would otherwise overwrite packages from other versions in the same suite. (Usually, using the latest stable libpq5 version will be ok for users. The packages built from other PostgreSQL versions are provided only for completeness.)
