PostgreSQL packages for Debian and Ubuntu

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group (PGDG) maintains an 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.

Note: This repository was previously available at the old location pgapt.debian.net. Please update your sources.list ASAP to use the location mentioned below - you do not need to reinstall anything, the packages and the keyring used are the same. The old location will stop working at the end of January 2013.

Quickstart

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

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

Create /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list. The distributions are called codename-pgdg. You may determine the codename by examining the /etc/lsb-release file:

grep CODENAME /etc/lsb-release

In the example, replace squeeze with the actual distribution you are using:

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

Update the package lists, and start installing packages:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install postgresql pgadmin3

Have a look at the FAQ.

Note: this will replace all your Debian/Ubuntu PostgreSQL packages with packages from the PGDG repository. If you do not want this, you need to configure Apt pinning.
