3 Using a Package Manager to Install Advanced Server

The Advanced Server RPM installs Advanced Server and the core components of the database server. 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/as10.
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 6.1.
