Installing pgAdmin from source
==============================
This document describes how to build pgAdmin from source on *nix, Mac and
Windows.
Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and other unix variants
-----------------------------------------------
You will need:
- A modern development environment:
- GTK 2.2 or above.
- GNU automake 1.9 or above.
- GNU autoconf 2.59 or above.
- GNU gcc 3.4 or above.
- wxGTK 2.8.x from http://www.wxwidgets.org/
- libxml2 2.6.18 or above from http://www.xmlsoft.org/
- libxslt 1.1.x or above from http://www.xmlsoft.org/
- PostgreSQL 8.4 or above from http://www.postgresql.org/
- Sphinx 1.0 or above from http://sphinx.pocoo.org/
Building:
1) Install libxml2 and libxslt if they are not already present on your system,
per the instructions included with them.
2) Install PostgreSQL per the instructions included. It is recommended that you
build with OpenSSL support, using the --with-openssl configure option.
3) Unpack the wxGTK tarball to a convenient location, and build and install it
as follows:
cd /path/to/wxGTK/source/
./configure --with-gtk --enable-gtk2 --enable-unicode
make
sudo make install
# Install wxWidgets contrib modules.
cd contrib/
make
sudo make install
A script is included in the pgAdmin source tarball
(xtra/wx-build/build-wxgtk) which will build and install wxWidgets in each
combination of shared/static/debug/release builds for you.
4) Unpack the pgAdmin tarball to a convenient location, and build and install it
as follows:
bash bootstrap # Required only if building from a GIT checkout
./configure
make all
sudo make install
If any of the prerequisite components are installed in locations that the
configure script cannot find, you may specify their locations on the command
line. See the configure help (./configure --help) for details.
Mac OS X
--------
You will need:
- A modern development environment:
- XCode 2.0 or above
- GNU automake 1.9 or above.
- GNU autoconf 2.59 or above.
- wxMac 2.8.x from http://www.wxwidgets.org/
- libxml2 2.6.18 or above from http://www.xmlsoft.org/
- libxslt 1.1.x or above from http://www.xmlsoft.org/
- PostgreSQL 8.4 or above from http://www.postgresql.org/
- Sphinx 1.0 or above from http://sphinx.pocoo.org/
Building:
1) Install libxml2 and libxslt per the instructions included with them into a
non-system location. The default versions included with OS X Panther and
Tiger are too old and will not work correctly with pgAdmin.
2) Install PostgreSQL per the instructions included. It is recommended that you
build with OpenSSL support, using the --with-openssl configure option.
3) Unpack the wxMac tarball to a convenient location, and build and install it
as follows:
cd /path/to/wxMac/source/
./configure --with-mac --enable-gtk2 --enable-unicode
make
sudo make install
# Install wxWidgets contrib modules.
cd contrib/
make
sudo make install
Note: You may also pass the --enable-universal_binary option to configure to
build a Universal binary. This will also require a Universal build of
PostgreSQL's libpq library.
A script is included in the pgAdmin source tarball
(xtra/wx-build/build-wxmac) which will install a Universal build ofwxWidgets
in each combination of shared/static/debug/release builds for you.
4) Unpack the pgAdmin tarball to a convenient location, and build and install it
as follows:
bash bootstrap # Required only if building from a GIT checkout
./configure --enable-appbundle
make all
make install
This final step will build an OSX appbundle called pgAdmin3.app in the root
of your source tree. As this can take a minute or two, the
pkg/mac/debug-bundle.sh script may be used to build a non-relocatable 'fake'
appbundle using symbolic links directly to the executable files. This
appbundle is called pgAdmin3-debug.app, and doesn't need to be rebuilt when
pgAdmin is recompiled.
If any of the prerequisite components are installed in locations that the
configure script cannot find, you may specify their locations on the command
line. See the configure help (./configure --help) for details.
4) After building pgAdmin, you will need to build an application bundle in
order to launch the application. One way to do this is to execute the
script pkg/mac/debug-bundle.sh; you can then launch pgAdmin using the open
command (e.g. open pgAdmin3-Debug.app).
Windows
-------
You will need:
- Windows 2000 or above.
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2010.
- The Windows 2010 Platform SDK.
- Windows Installer XML v3.
- wxMSW 2.8.11 or above from http://www.wxwidgets.org/
- libxml2 2.6.18 or above from http://www.xmlsoft.org/
- libxslt 1.1.x or above from http://www.xmlsoft.org/
- iconv 1.9.x or above from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/
(note: as of this writing, the correct iconv package to download is
the one called "Developer Files")
- PostgreSQL 8.4 or above from http://www.postgresql.org/
- Sphinx 1.0 or above from http://sphinx.pocoo.org/
Precompiled XML/XSLT and dependency packages for Windows can be found at
http://zlatkovic.com. You probably need zlib 1.2.x as well as libxml2 and
libxslt.
Building:
1) Unpack the wxMSW source code to a convenient location pointed to by the
%WXWIN% environment variable.
2) Build wxMSW. To do this, run the build-wxmsw.bat script from the
xtra/wx-build directory in the pgAdmin source tree, in a Visual C++
command prompt window.
3) Install PostgreSQL to a convenient location pointed to by the %PGDIR%
environment variable.
4) Unpack the pgAdmin source code to a convenient location.
5) Set up a pgbuild directory in a location of your choice (e.g. C:\pgbuild)
and configure the %PGBUILD% environment variable to point to it. This
directory must have subdirectories called libxslt, libxml2, and iconv, each
of which must contain the files from the corresponding package. The
archives will probably unpack with some longer name, like
libxslt-1.1.26.win32; just rename them to remove the suffix.
Some versions of the iconv package ship the iconv libraries under different
names than what pgAdmin expects. If pgAdmin can't find the iconv
libraries, you may need to rename libiconv.a to iconv_a.lib and
libiconv.dll.a to iconv.lib.
6) Start Visual C++ and load the pgAdmin solution file. Build the required
targets.
7) To run the resulting executable, you'll need to copy all of the
prerequisite DLLs from the wxWidgets and PostgreSQL installations and the
various subdirectories of %PGBUILD% into the directory where the EXE file
is located, or have those directories in your path.
