This is guide, howto install PostgreSQL 15/14/13/12 database server on Fedora 38/37/36, CentOS/Red Hat (RHEL)/Rocky Linux 9/8.5. This guide uses PostgreSQL own YUM repos, which are always up-to-date and stable releases are available instantly. You can use this guide to install any Postgresql versions, like 15, 14, 13, 12 etc. Check video guide howto install PostgreSQL 14/13/12 on Fedora 35/34 using PostgreSQL’s own dnf repo: Subscribe and follow: Follow @inttf Check video guide howto install PostgreSQL 14/13/12 on Rocky Linux 8.
This is quick guide howto install PostgreSQL 8.4 (current stable 8.4.7) database server on CentOS, Fedora and Red Hat. Fedora 14, Fedora 13, CentOS 5.5 and Red Hat (RHEL) 5.5 has PostgreSQL 8.4 database server as default so extra repositories is not needed. Personally, I like to use Postgres own repositories, because the latest version of PostgreSQL may be quickly and easily installed. The following commands run as root and postgres user, so “su -” or “sudo -i” first.
This article compares the speed and performance of queries between partitioned and non partitioned PostgreSQL tables. However, it is important to remember that the PostgreSQL tables partitioning has also another benefits, than the better performance on queries. More information about other benefits from the first part ‘Howto create PostgreSQL table partitioning (Part 1)‘. This is comparision between partitioned and non partitioned PostgreSQL tables. The same tests were carried out with and without indices, because using the indices, it is no longer very meaningful example on table, which has one billion rows of data (if the table is not partitioned).
As Part 1 (Howto create PostgreSQL table partitioning) shows, making of PostgreSQL partitioning needs a lot of SQL commands. So this Part 2 explains how SQL commands for PostgreSQL partitioning can be made with a simple PHP script. This example script make SQL for child tables, indexes, trigger function and parent table trigger. This example script can make PostgreSQL table partitioning with using Date ranges. Script can be configured with following configuration section:
PostgreSQL supports partitioning via table inheritance. So the partitioning is made in such a way that every child table inherits single parent table. Parent table is empty and it exists just to describe the whole data set. PostgreSQL partitioning can be implemented in range partitioning or list partitioning. Range partitioning can be done for example by ID ranges (like 0-100 000, 100 001-200 000, 200 001-300 000…) or Date ranges (like 2009-11-01 – 2009-11-30, 2009-12-01 – 2009-12-31…).
Psql is a good tool for the PostgreSQL database management and use. Psql client functioning can easily be improved by adding a few lines ~/.psqlrc file.
- Tuning psqlrc 1.1 Set all null fields to NULL: \pset null 'NULL' After this, the query results look like this: select 'test' as test_text, null as test_null; test_text | test_null ———–+———– test | NULL (1 row) 1.2 Set the command history file names for each host and database: \set HISTFILE ~/.
