Any UNIX-Like Platform

General Linux

Debian/Ubuntu Linux

Debian based installs have a somewhat unique design that allows multiple database clusters to be managed independently. This allows running both multiple database instances as well as multiple versions more easily than other packaging schemes.

Note: if you do not wish, for example, PostgreSQL or Slony to start automatically when the software is upgraded, do the following:

   echo 'if $1 in postgresql-9.3|slony1-2 then exit 101 else exit 0' > /usr/sbin/policy-rc.d
   chmod +x /usr/sbin/policy-rc.d






Alternative to manual installation

Some users may prefer to skip manual installation by using a pre-integrated PostgreSQL software appliance.
