You can use the yum package manager to install Advanced Server or Advanced Server supporting components. 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 a package or create a local repository, but you may be required to manually satisfy package dependencies.The Advanced Server meta installer RPM installs Advanced Server and its core components. You can use the meta installer for installation convenience, or pick and choose any sub-component that you need on a particular machine. Note that some sub-components require the installation of other Advanced Server component packages, while other packages may be installed individually. For a complete list of the RPM installers available for Advanced Server and its supporting components, see Section 3.1.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/as9.6.By default, Advanced Server logging is configured to write files to the pg_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 6.1.
