Experts,

       We run RHEL5 here. How can I find out what version of Postgresql  is supported and is an official copy? I thought it would have been Postgresql9.0.3 but a co-worker believes that it is 8.1.23. How do we verify the correct copy to use?

Thanks, Missymadi

The latest 9.0.0-1
 If you use a package manager like rpm (e.g., RedHat, SuSE, Mandrake), use this to verify
   tallac$ rpm -q postgresql


Download the rpms from http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/binary...x/rpms/redhat/ 

Also here is a link to help you install

Depends on whether you will migrate the database table data to new major version or only upgrade the executables and object libraries.

Do you have a plan for Continuity?

It's inevitable. People leave organizations creating a gap in your service. That's where Percona comes in.

See how Pepper.com relies on Percona to:
-Manage their database
-Guarantee data safety and protection
-Provide database expertise that is available for any situation

We are looking for the newest version of postgres available for RHEL 5 32. Which version would that be? Also which PGAdmin would go with that version?

I am working with someone on this and they advised that we should be using Postgres version 8.1.23 because it is a "certified" release with RHEL5. If I have to use 8.1.23 what version on PGAdmin would i use? And when I download how do I determine that it is in fact a certified release of PGAdmin?

For the YUM option, we are not connected to the internet for this box.

PostgreSQL 8.1 is the "norm" on RHEL 5, Red Hat gave us a gift in their RHEL 5.5 update. It now includes separate PostgreSQL 8.4 packages that may optionally be used on RHEL 5 instead of PostgreSQL 8.1. (Both can't be used on the same system at the same time.)

You can use PGadmin 3
