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

  2. Install pgc via command line to a sandbox:

    MAC / Linux:

    python -c "$(curl -fsSL" 


    @powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Command "iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString(''))"
  3. Get into the product home directory by navigating via command line to the bigsql directory. Windows users don’t prefix the pgc command with ./ as shown in the below examples:

    cd bigsql
  4. Using the pgc command line tool, run the update command to get the lastest distribution:

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

    ./pgc install pgdevops
    ./pgc init pgdevops
    ./pgc start pgdevops
  6. Open pgDevOps in browser:
