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.

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?

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
