PostgreSQL 8-1.22 to 9.1

Experts,

      I created a VM and installed RHEL. PostgreSQL 8.1.22 was preinstalled on RHEL but I want to install 9.1. How do I go about doing this? Do I need to run through and configure the 8.1.22 or can I just upgrade to 9.1? I am new to Linux and Postgre so I'm not sure what the best way to configure. I have read through the installation notes on Postgre site but it is not clear to me if I need to configure the 8.1.22 first then install the 9.1. I do not have any data in 8.1.22.

Thanks, Missymadi

If you are new to linux it could be better for you to use the latest ubuntu server version, it may be easier to deal with than redhat.

To your question, you do not need to configure 8.1.22, just go for 9.1, install it (do you install from rpm or source?) and configure it directly, no need to play around with 8.1.22

I would agree with Hatrix76; a Ubuntu server might be the easiest to use if you're not familiar with Linux.

Unfortunetly, I'm stuck with Red Hat.

Thanks for the information.
