Take the easy route

Never used the BigSQL PostgreSQL Distributions before? Follow these 5 easy steps. Already have BigSQL pgc installed? Jump to step #3.

  1. Read this short introduction to BigSQL’s package and update manager (pgc).

  2. Install pgc via command line to a sandbox.

    *Note: this command will install the BigSQL distribution into the directory you are currently located.

    MAC / Linux:

    python -c "$(curl -fsSL http://s3.amazonaws.com/pgcentral/install.py)" 


    @powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Command "iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('http://s3.amazonaws.com/pgcentral/install.ps1'))"
  3. Get into the product home directory by navigating via command line to the bigsql directory:

    cd bigsql
  4. Using the pgc command line tool, run the update command to get the latest distribution (Windows users, don’t prefix the pgc command with ./ as shown in the examples below):

    ./pgc update
  5. Then run the install, init, and start commands on pg10:

    ./pgc install pg10
    ./pgc init pg10
    ./pgc start pg10
