Installing PostgreSQL

Suggest edits

EDB installation wizards provide an easy way to install PostgreSQL on a Mac or Windows system. The wizard prompts you to specify information about your system. It then starts the installation based on your selections.


If you're using the graphical installation wizard to perform a system upgrade, the installer preserves the configuration options specified during the previous installation.

When the PostgreSQL installation finishes, you can optionally invoke the Stack Builder package manager. Stack Builder provides a graphical interface for downloading and installing applications, drivers, utilities, and their dependencies. See Using Stack Builder for more information.

To download the EDB graphical PostgreSQL installers for Windows and Mac, see the EDB downloads page.

EDB also makes PostgreSQL Early Experience distributions available. For details, see PostgreSQL Early Experience.

If you are installing PostgreSQL from the command line, you may want to take advantage of command line parameters.
