Installing Postgres Enterprise Manager server on CentOS 7 x86_64 v9
Before you begin the installation process:
Set up the repository.
Setting up the repository is a one-time task. If you have already set up your repository, you do not need to perform this step. To determine if your repository exists, enter this command:
dnf repolist | grep enterprisedb
To set up the EDB repository:
Go to EDB repositories.
Select the button that provides access to the EDB repo.
Select the platform and software that you want to download.
To set up the PostgreSQL community repository, go to the downloads page for PostgreSQL.
The PostgreSQL community repository is required only if you are using PostgreSQL as the backend database for PEM server.
Review configuration and authentication requirements for PEM.
For more details, see Configuring the PEM server on Linux.
The operating system user pem is created while installing the PEM server. The PEM server web application is a WSGI application, which runs under Apache HTTPD. The pem application data and the session is saved to this user's home directory.
If you're doing a fresh installation of the PEM server on a CentOS 7.x host, the installer also installs edb-python3-mod_wsgi packages with the installation required by the operating system.
If you're upgrading the PEM server on a CentOS 7.x host, the mod_wsgi system package is replaced by the edb-python3-mod_wsgi package as required by the operating system.
