Experts,

      Where would I find an official copy of Postgres 9 and PGAdmin III? I thought I had a good copy of PGAdmin III but got an error that the release that I had was not official. I do not want a release that has been repackaged. I had downloaded the rpms from postgres.org!

Thanks, Missymadi

You can download the binaries from here which will auto install for you.  If you run into errors with it, post the entire message back here and I should be able to help you out with it.

yum and yast are RedHat and SuSE package management

yum install pgadmin3
yum install postgresql

Could someone explain to me why we would install Postgresql 8.1.23 and not the latest version? I was told by a coworker that postgresql is considered a downstream project and to use Postgresql 8.1.23 from RedHat to ensure the packages all work together on a Linux box?

And which version of PGAdmin would you use for a Postgres 8.1.23 version?

Thanks Missymadi

Postgres 9 works fine on RedHat Linux.  I use it for mutliple databases on my system, and I am running it on a RedHat 5 machine.  There would be no reason to use Postgres 8.1 over Postgres 9.

If you do decide to use Postgres 8.1.23 though, PGAdmin 3 will work fine for it
