Last weekend i started setting up a new project. It will be an normal Apache and PHP webbased project with an PostgreSQL database. So i need to set it up.
First of all how do we get. Maybe i should start with the information that i choosed 12.2 (currently Factory) as the version of openSUSE.
While searching on software.opensuse.org i found that there is a database repo.
Which i added via YaST.
zypper in postgresql postgresql-server
should do the rest. And your database is ready to get configured.
Now switch to the new postgres user.
su - postgres
and initialize the database
initdb -D /var/lib/pgsql/data/
To start the database you need to
pg_ctl -D /var/lib/pgsql/data -l pglog.log start
and your database should be running. Now we need to add our first user and database.
postgres@linux-0ryq:~> createuser -P mytestuser postgres@linux-0ryq:~> psql postgres=# CREATE DATABASE mytest; CREATE DATABASE postgres=# GRANT ALL ON DATABASE mytest TO mytestuser; GRANTED
So, this setup should work fo any local connection to the database. If you want to connect from another host you need to adjust your data/pg_hba.conf and add a line like
# TYPE DATABASE USER ADDRESS METHOD host all all all trust
or any host you want. If you want to connect from 10.1.0.1 you fust need to set this at address.
Changing the hba conf should force a restart of the database
pg_ctl -D /var/lib/pgsql/data -l pglog.log restart
will do this.
So thats it, more to follow.
