Installing Postgres Enterprise Manager server on RHEL 7 or OL 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 set up the EDB repository, go to EDB repositories and follow the instructions provided there.
To set up the PostgreSQL community repository, go to yum or apt.
The PostgreSQL community repository is required only if you are using PostgreSQL as the backend database for PEM server.
Install the Postgres server. See Installing EDB Postgres Advanced Server on Linux or Installing PostgreSQL.
Review configuration and authentication requirements for PEM.
Install the package
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 RHEL 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 RHEL 7.x host, the mod_wsgi system package is replaced by the edb-python3-mod_wsgi package as required by the operating system.
