Installing Postgres (PostgreSQL) in Cpanel Server

PostgreSQL is a free object-relational database server.It offers an alternative to other open-source database systems such as MySQL

Installing Postgres database on Cpanel server is very easy. Just run following command on SSH prompt as root.

root@server1 [~]#  /scripts/installpostgres

The script will fetch Postgres database and required other programs and install.

root@server1 [~]# /scripts/installpostgres
This script will install Postgres 7.3.x or later
If you have an older version installed you wil need to
Dump your databases to a file and then restore them
after the install as 7.3.x is not backwards compatible.
If you do not have any databases, you can just run:
mv /var/lib/pgsql /var/lib/pgsql.old
/sbin/service postgresql stop
/sbin/service postgresql start
to force creating a 7.3.x style setup. Do not do this if
you have databases that you wish to keep!

Are you sure you wish to proceed? y
