Installing Postgres-related packages v23
TPA installs a batch of non-Postgres-related packages early during the deployment, then all Postgres-related packages together, and then packages for optional components separately. This page is about installing packages like pglogical that depend on Postgres itself.
To install extra packages that depend on Postgres (e.g., Postgis), list
cluster_vars or a
vars in config.yml:
The packages listed under
packages.common will be installed on every
instance, together with the default list of Postgres packages, and any
distribution-specific packages you specify.
There's a separate page about compiling and installing Postgres from source.
