Overview

PostgreSQL database is required for 64-bit SEP sesam installations. Note that SEP sesam RPM packages already include PostgreSQL server package, however for some older SEP sesam versions, you may have to install the PostgreSQL manually as described below.

The database can be installed on different Linux-based distributions:

  • SLES
  • Debian/Ubuntu/UCS
  • RHEL/CentOS

For details on PostgreSQL backup or restore configuration, see PostgreSQL Backup and PostgreSQL Restore.

SLES-based distributions

The PostgreSQL database can be installed using YaST or other common command line tools (rug or zypper) on the SLES system. For details on the supported SLES versions, see SEP sesam OS and Database Support Matrix.

Installing with zypper

SLES includes the standard tool zypper which is common for package management. With this tool packages can be installed (and uninstalled) in the command line. The package name for the PostgreSQL database is postgresq1-server. The SEP sesam Server package includes all dependencies that are needed for standard SEP sesam Server installation.

To install the PostgreSQL database, use the following command:

kiwi:~ # zypper install postgresql-server

The installation is performed as shown in the output below:

kiwi:~ # zypper install postgresql-server

The following new packages have been installed:

Total size of the download: 4,1 M. After the operation an additional 7,1 M will be needed.

Calling: postgresql-server-8.3.7-0.1.1.i586.rpm [fertig (1,1 M/s)]
Installing: postgresql-server-8.3.7-0.1.1 [done]

After successful installation, start the PostgreSQL instance:

kiwi:~ # /etc/init.d/postgresql start

Starting PostgreSQL                                                     done

Installing with YaST

It is possible to install the packages by using GUI. You can search for the package and select it by using YaST Package Search. Note that the YaST module is not available by default; the package yast2-packager-webpin must be installed first.

Debian-based distributions

For Debian-based distributions (Debian/Ubuntu/UCS) SEP provides signed Debian repositories for easier package installation, verification and update of the SEP sesam software. For details on Debian packages, see Debian Repository.

Installing with apt-get

Debian-based distribution (Debian/Ubuntu/UCS) includes the standard tool apt-get which is common for package management. With this tool packages can be installed (and uninstalled) in the command line.

The SEP sesam Server package includes all dependencies that are needed for standard SEP sesam Server installation. For details on the supported Debian-based versions, see SEP sesam OS and Database Support Matrix.

To install the PostgreSQL database, use the following command:

root@hostname#: apt-get install postgresql

The installation is performed as shown in the output below:

root@hostname#: apt-get install postgresql

Installing SEP sesam on Debian and Ubuntu requires additional steps. For details, see Debian Repository.

RHEL/CentOS-based distributions

Installing via yum package manager

Installing in RHEL- or CentOS-based distributions is similar as in SLES or Debian. All RHEL- and CentOS-based distributions include the standard tool yum which is common for package management. With this tool packages can be installed (and uninstalled) in the command line.

The SEP sesam Server package includes all dependencies that are needed for standard SEP sesam Server installation. For details on the supported RHEL/CentOS-based versions, see SEP sesam OS and Database Support Matrix.

To install the PostgreSQL database, use the following command:

# yum install postgresql-server

The installation is performed as shown in the output below:
