Postgresql plugin for asdf version manager
This requires brew if you're on a mac, or a debian flavored linux. If you need it to work on something else, you'll likely need to modify the plugin.
- You will need a compiler.
- Hit the ok button and it will install. If it already has it, then you are good.
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential
- On Ubuntu, you will need libreadline
sudo apt-get install libreadline-dev
asdf plugin-add postgres https://github.com/smashedtoatoms/asdf-postgres.git
Check asdf readme for instructions on how to install & manage versions of Postgres.
When installing Postgres using
asdf install, you can pass custom configure options with the following env vars:
POSTGRES_CONFIGURE_OPTIONS- use only your configure options
POSTGRES_EXTRA_CONFIGURE_OPTIONS- append these configure options along with ones that this plugin already uses
How to use (easier version)
- Create your .tool-versions file in the project that needs postgres and add
postgres 9.4.7or whatever version that you want.
- Once it is done, run
- Once that starts, run
createdb defaultyou can sub
defaultwith whatever you want your db name to be.
- Then log in with
psql -d defaultif you didn't use default, make sure you use whatever you put in step 2.
- If you need to move your data file around, move data from your install directory, which will look something like this:
~/.asdf/installs/postgres/9.4.7/datato wherever you want it. Once it is moved, start your db with
pg_ctl -D wherever/you/moved/it start. Your postgresql.conf file is in that directory if you need to change the port or anything.
- Just run
pg_ctl stopif you moved your data directory, you have to do
pg_ctl -D wherever/you/moved/it stop
