3 Using a Package Manager to Install Advanced Server

You can use the dnf or yum package manager to install Advanced Server or Advanced Server supporting components. dnf or yum will attempt to satisfy package dependencies as it installs a package, but requires access to the Advanced Server repositories. If your system does not have access to a repository via the Internet, you can use RPM to install an individual package or create a local repository, but you may be required to manually satisfy package dependencies.
On Fedora, CentOS, or RHEL: repoquery --requires --resolve package_name
On Debain, Ubuntu: apt-cache depends package_name
On SLES: zypper search --requires --verbose package_name
Installing the server package creates a database superuser named enterprisedb. The user is assigned a user ID (UID) and a group ID (GID) of 26. The user has no default password; use the passwd command to assign a password for the user. The default shell for the user is bash, and the user's home directory is /var/lib/edb/as12.
By default, Advanced Server logging is configured to write files to the log subdirectory of the data directory, rotating the files each day and retaining one week of log entries. You can customize the logging behavior of the server by modifying the postgresql.conf file; for more information about Modifying the postgresql.conf file, please see Section 5.2.
