Puppet module for postgresql

Basic usage

To install the client software

class {'postgresql':  }

To specify a particular version

class {'postgresql':
    version => '9.1',

To install the server

class {'postgresql::server': }

Again, a particular version

class {'postgresql::server':
	version => '9.1',

Listen on a specific post / IP address

class {'postgresql::server':
	listen => ['', ],
	port   => 5432

To create a database owned by a user

postgresql::db { 'myuser':
    password => 'mypassword',

This will create myuser and then create a database called myuser which will owned by myuser. You can override the default locale and encoding and, if required, specify a different owner. For example:

postgresql::db { 'mydatabase':
    owner    => 'myuser',
    password => 'mypassword',
    locale   => 'en_AU.UTF-8',
    encoding => 'C',

Read on, if your specific setup does not fall within this (admittedly simple) framework.

Create a user

This creates a role in the database cluster, by default the user is able to login and will inherit the permissions of any groups it is a member of.

pg_user {'pguser':
	ensure   => present,
	password => 'pgpassword',

You can also modify other attributes like whether the user can create databases (createdb), create other roles (createrole) or is the superuser (superuser).

For example:

pg_user {'mighty_pguser':
    ensure     => present,
    password   => 'themightone',
    createdb   => true,
    createrole => true,

Create a database

This creates a database and adds a dependancy relationship to the user

pg_database {'pgdb':
	ensure   => present,
	owner    => 'pguser',
	require  => Pg_user['pguser'],

The default is UTF-8 and en_GB.UTF-8 , for English. If required, you can also specify both the locale and encoding of a database.

pg_database {'pgdb':
	ensure   => present,
	owner    => 'pguser',
	encoding => 'UTF8',
	locale   => 'de_DE.UTF-8',
	require  => Pg_user['pguser'],


This module will not (yet) update either the user or database once they have been initially created. i.e. changing the login permission of a user does not work. Nor does changing the locale of an existing database.
