PostgreSQL packages for Debian and Ubuntu

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group (PGDG) maintains a apt repository of PostgreSQL packages for Debian and Ubuntu 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/Ubuntu releases for all PostgreSQL versions supported.

Currently, we support

  • Debian 6.0 (squeeze), 7.0 (wheezy), and unstable (sid) 64/32 bit (amd64/i386)
  • Ubuntu 10.4 (lucid) and 12.4 (precise) 64/32 bit (amd64/i386)
  • PostgreSQL 8.3, 8.4, 9.0, 9.1, 9.2
  • Several server extensions such as Slony-I, various PL languages, and datatypes
  • Applications like pgadmin3, pgbouncer, and pgpool-II

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.

Quickstart

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.d/pgdg.list. The distributions are called codename-pgdg. In the example, replace squeeze with the actual distribution you are using:

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

Configure apt's package pinning to prefer the PGDG packages over the Debian ones in /etc/apt/preferences.d/pgdg.pref:

Package: *
Pin: release o=apt.postgresql.org
Pin-Priority: 500

Note: this will replace all your Debian/Ubuntu packages with available packages from the PGDG repository. If you do not want this, skip this step.

Update the package lists, and install the pgdg-keyring package to automatically get repository key updates:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pgdg-keyring

Have a look at the FAQ.
