Postgres Package Manager by BigSQL

Our Postgres Package Manager is a simple and powerful way to install PostgreSQL and it's family of components from the command line into a self contained and relocatable directory. Take a look at our PGC tutorial to learn more.

Install BigSQL PGC

Paste one of the below commands at a terminal/command prompt, from the directory you wish to install bigsql/pgc. A bigsql subdirectory is created with everything you need to run pgc commands.

 

||   At the Linux or OSX Terminal prompt use this command:
 

     python -c "$(curl -fsSL https://s3.amazonaws.com/pgcentral/install.py)"
Notes:   1.) If your system doesn't have python (2) then use the python3 command instead
2.) Linux versions CentOS 7 & and Ubuntu 18.04 are well tested (CentOS 6 won't work with these binaries)
3.) On linux, only pg10 & pg11 are available
4.) OSX 10.11+ is recommended

 

    At the Windows command prompt, opened with Run as administrator, use this command:

     @powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Command "iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('https://s3.amazonaws.com/pgcentral/install.ps1'))"

 

Run BigSQL PGC Commands

Note that production quality versions of PostgreSQL are presently pg94, pg95, pg96, pg10 & pg11.

To install and run the PostgreSQL version of your choice type:
 

  cd bigsql
  pgc install pg11
  pgc start pg11
