3 Installing Postgres Enterprise Manager™ : 3.2 Using an RPM Package to Install the PEM Server

The pg_hba.conf file on the backing database must be configured to use trust authentication for connections. For information about modifying the pg_hba.conf file, visit:
You must also install the hstore contrib module; for more information, visit:
Before installing the PEM server, you must create the repository configuration file (edb.repo). The repository configuration file contains connection and authentication information for the EnterpriseDB repository. To prepare your system to perform an RPM installation, assume superuser privileges and use yum to create the repository configuration file:
Please note: If you are a Red Hat Network user you must also enable the rhel-x-server-optional-rpms repository to use EPEL packages, where x specifies the version of RHEL on the host. You can make the repository accessible by enabling the RHEL optional subchannel for RHN-Classic. If you have a certificate-based subscription, please see the Red Hat Subscription Management Guide. You must also enable the rhel-x-server-extras-rpms repository, where x specifies the version of RHEL on the host.
After creating the repository configuration file, use your choice of editor to enable the repository entries from which you will install packages. The repository configuration file is named edb.repo, and resides in /etc/yum.repos.d. To enable a repository, change the value of the enabled parameter to 1 and replace the username and password placeholders in the baseurl specification with your user name and the repository password.
yum install edb-asX-server-sslutils
yum install sslutils_X postgresqlX-contrib
The directory for the database server installation. For example, /usr/edb/as10 for Advanced Server or /usr/pgsql-10 for PostgreSQL.
The installation type: Specify 1 if the configuration is for web services and backing database, 2 if you are configuring web services, or 3 if you are configuring the backing database. If you specify 3, please note that the database must reside on the local host.
If you are using a RHEL or CentOS 6.x host, restart the httpd24 server after configuring the PEM server; use the command:
https://ip_address_of_PEM_server:8443
