Installing EDB Postgres Advanced Server 9.5

Some days ago EnterpriseDB released EDB Postgres Advanced Server 9.5. As usual this release contains all new features that have been introduced with PostgreSQL 9.5 plus the additions that are documented in the release notes.

Some time ago I blogged on how to install the 9.4 release. In this post I want to check if anything changed in the installation process. Installing Postgres Advanced server usually is just clicking next,next,next and you’re done if you chose to install in graphical mode. Lets see.

Download, transfer, extract, start (you need to have java installed if you want to have a graphical user interface):

[email protected] $ tar -axf ppasmeta-9.5.0.5-linux-x64.tar.gz 
[email protected] $ cd ppasmeta-9.5.0.5-linux-x64
[email protected] $ ./ppasmeta-9.5.0.5-linux-x64.run

It is so simple that I just paste the screenshots without any explanations:
ppas95_1
ppas95_2
ppas95_3
ppas95_4
ppas95_5

Infinite cache is deprecated and I do not want to play with Slony replication nor do I want to have this installation monitored by PEM.

ppas95_6
ppas95_7
ppas95_8
ppas95_9
ppas95_10
ppas95_11
ppas95_12
ppas95_13
ppas95_14
ppas95_15
ppas95_16
ppas95_17
ppas95_18

Here we go:

[email protected]:/home/enterprisedb/ [PG2] psql postgres
Null display is "NULL".
Timing is on.
psql.bin (9.5.0.5)
Type "help" for help.

([email protected][local]:5445) [postgres] > select version();
                                                   version                                                    
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 EnterpriseDB 9.5.0.5 on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-55), 64-bit
(1 row)

Still as easy as in the previous release. Of course the text mode installation is still available if you do not have X available:

[email protected] $ ./ppasmeta-9.5.0.5-linux-x64.run
