1 Introduction : 1.3 Other Conventions Used in this Guide

Much of the information in this document applies interchangeably to the PostgreSQL and EDB Postgres Advanced Server database systems. The term Advanced Server is used to refer to EDB Postgres Advanced Server. The term Postgres is used to generically refer to both PostgreSQL and Advanced Server. When a distinction needs to be made between these two database systems, the specific names, PostgreSQL or Advanced Server are used.
The installation directory path of the PostgreSQL or Advanced Server products is referred to as POSTGRES_INSTALL_HOME. For PostgreSQL Linux installations, this defaults to /opt/PostgreSQL/x.x for version 10 and earlier. For later versions, use the PostgreSQL community packages. For Advanced Server Linux installations accomplished using the interactive installer for version 10 and earlier, this defaults to /opt/PostgresPlus/x.xAS or /opt/edb/asx.x. For Advanced Server Linux installations accomplished using an RPM package, this defaults to /usr/ppas-x.x or /usr/edb/asx.x. The product version number is represented by x.x or by xx for version 10 and later. For Advanced Server Linux installations accomplished using an RPM package for version 11, this defaults to /usr/edb/as11.
