Installation and uninstallation v7

This chapter describes how to install and uninstall Replication Server.

Installation of Replication Server can be accomplished a number of different ways:

  • Using a graphical user interface
  • Running the Replication Server installer program from the command line console in text or unattended mode
  • Installing the Replication Server RPM package using the Yum package manager

The most common installation of Replication Server is done with the graphical user interface invoked by Stack Builder or StackBuilder Plus depending upon whether you are using PostgreSQL or Advanced Server.

  • For PostgreSQL. Install Replication Server using Stack Builder after you have installed PostgreSQL.
  • For Advanced Server. Install Replication Server using StackBuilder Plus after you have installed Advanced Server.

For circumstances in which you do not wish to use the graphical user interface, the Replication Server installer program can be downloaded from the EnterpriseDB website, and then invoked in text or unattended mode as well as the graphical user interface mode. See Installing from the Command Line for instructions on installing Replication Server from the command line.

The Replication Server product is also available as an RPM package in which case the Yum package manager is used for installation. See Installing the Replication Server RPM Package for instructions on installing Replication Server from the RPM package.

Section Installing With Stack Builder or StackBuilder Plus describes the installation of Replication Server through the graphical user interface of Stack Builder or StackBuilder Plus.

Note

If you have an older version of Replication Server and existing replication systems, review Section Upgrading to Replication Server 7.0 before installing Replication Server.

If you later decide you wish to remove Replication Server from your system see Section Uninstalling Replication Server for directions on uninstalling Replication Server if you initially installed it with the graphical user interface or by invoking the installer program from the command line. See Uninstalling the Replication Server RPM Package for directions on uninstalling Replication Server that was installed from the RPM package.
