I have to install PostgreSql onto Redhat. I cannot use YUM. I have downloaded these rpm's


What i need to know...
a). Is this all i require?
b). Is there a "correct" sequence to "rpm -ivh" these?

  • Shouldn't you compile it from source, if yum is not an option? Jun 26, 2013 at 15:33

Just rpm -Uvh postgresql91-*.rpm. It will install it in correct order and it will complain if it needs something.

But I can't imagine why you can't use yum.

  • i do like to see simple answers. we cannot use YUM as our target servers do not have internet access.

    Why wouldn't a user be able to use yum? Maybe they are running a private server inside an enterprise environment. Maybe they have a local machine without proxy authorization. Maybe they have a department intranet. Maybe they are trying to prove something. Feb 22, 2017 at 16:49

You might want to add in postgresql91-devel.x86_64 as well. Also, is there a reason to choose 9.1 over 9.2?

There are some RPM steps on the postgresql wiki: RPM_Installation
