Installing PostgreSQL
« on: December 10, 2008, 04:58:25 AM »
I just got a new computer so I have to reinstall PostgreSQL.  I noticed the tutorial is different than the steps of the program.  Specifically, on the screen where you check Run as Service(?), there are lines for superuser name and password.  I did not see any mention of this in the tutorial.  Is there any chance of getting updated instructions for installing the service?

Second, I notice that the site that hosts PostgreSQL has an auto installer for the latest version.  It ends with -2 instead of -1.  Has anyone tried using it to install PostgreSQL, and how does it compare to the manual instructions in the tutorial?  Are there any changes that need to be made after it installs?

Thanks,
Tsnake

I have never used the auto installer.  I have a new laptop though so I will install PostgreSQL on it this weekend and check it out/update the tutorial.  Thanks for bringing it up.

I updated the instructions but still haven't tried the auto-install.
