Tuesday, 24 June 2008 at 16:00 UTC 1 comment

1. basic installation of postgresql server (contrib is needed for adminpack)

apt-get install postgresql postgresql-contrib

2. optional install pdadmin GUI

apt-get install pgadmin3

3. Now reset the password for the ‘postgres’ admin account for the server:

$ sudo su postgres -c psql template1 template1=# ALTER USER postgres WITH PASSWORD 'password'; template1=# \q

4. now change the password for the unix user ‘postgres’:

$ sudo passwd -d postgres $ sudo su postgres -c passwd

5. install adminpack
Before you use pgAdmin you should setup the PostgreSQL adminpack that enables better logging and monitoring within pgAdmin:

$ sudo su postgres -c psql < /usr/share/postgresql/8.2/contrib/adminpack.sql
