Postgres support for installer and many other sections (4.65 KB, patch)

Support for Postgre install and use (30.01 KB, patch)
2006-04-12 03:25 UTC, Greg Sabino Mullane

Description Brion Vibber 2004-09-06 08:20:10 UTC
Current MediaWiki must be manually configured for PostgreSQL.

* tweak PostgreSQL configuration itself :P
* create database
* load in pg_tables.sql
* do lots of GRANTs on all the tables/schemas and sequences

The LocalSettings.php needs some particular love:
$wgDBtype = 'PostgreSQL';
$wgPutIPinRC = true;
$wgDisableSearchUpdate = true;

The installer needs an option for pg setup, and the updaters need PG versions from here out.
Comment 1 Domas Mituzas 2004-12-22 20:12:36 UTC
There are detailed install instructions at
Comment 2 Rob Church 2005-10-09 16:29:33 UTC
Nevertheless, users of PostgreSQL ought to be able to use the standard installer

Postgres support for installer and many other sections

Should allow a PG install to take place, when combined with the patch from bug
1295. Also fixes some other pieces of code to allow PG to work once installed.

Support for Postgre install and use

Latest and greatest, run against svn 13596. Includes schema as well, and thus
deprecates the other bug.
