Re: Morning AWOL Report for 2 Jan 2018

The postgresql (and any other software for that matter) depends on the computer and operating system. I'm running Linux, the postgresql is installation included in the distribution. I don't know about other systems. I know, you can get postgresql from postgresql.org. They have packages that can be downloaded for various os's. They also have a tarball that contains the sources. You can compile it for any other system.

Once installed, it has to be initialized. There are detailed instructions on how to initialize it. It depends on your os. There should be a console program called initdb that will initialize the database. You then have to modify 2 configuration files: postgresql.conf and pg_hba.conf to determine how much access each user and/or ip address has. After that you should be able to use a client like either psql or pgAdmin to log in as the super user postgres. Your first SQL should be to set up a role under your usual login name for your pc.

After that, you are in the database business.
