3 Using a Package Manager to Install Advanced Server

The ppas95 meta RPM installs Advanced Server, and its core supporting components. You can use the Advanced Server meta RPM 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 3.3
The installation of the server package creates a database superuser named enterprisedb. The user is assigned a UID and a 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/ppas.
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, located in /var/lib/ppas/9.5/data
