Installing PostgreSQL 10 & Stack Builder on Windows


A very simple wizard run-through of a PostgreSQL and Stack Builder installations.


Installing PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL official downloads can be found here. Also see this link (chapter 16) for installing this on a Linux system.

1. Run set-up exe file.

2. Specify installation directory.

3. Select features.

4. Specify data directory.

5. Enter the superuser (postgres) password.

6. Enter the listening port.

7. Default local for English.

8. Next, next, next & you’re done.


Installing Stack Builder Components

Stack Builder is a quick way of getting additional software installed on your server, such as drivers, apache and EnterpriseDB tools.

1. Select your Postgres Sever.

2. Make your selections – pretty handy having things like the drivers in here.

3. Continue on.

4. A reboot may be required, depending on what has been selected.

And we’re done. Next, install a management tool such as PG Admin.
