Postgres Package Manager by BigSQL

Our Postgres Package Manager is a simple and powerful way to install PostgreSQL and it's family of components from the command line into a self contained and relocatable directory. Take a look at our PGC tutorial to learn more.

Install BigSQL PGC

Paste one of the below commands at a terminal/command prompt, from the directory you wish to install bigsql/pgc. A bigsql subdirectory is created with everything you need to run pgc commands.


  At the Linux command line use this command:

     python -c "$(curl -fsSL"
Notes:   1.) If your system doesn't have python (2) then use the python3 command instead
2.) Linux versions CentOS 7+ and Ubuntu 18+ are tested (CentOS 6 won't work with these binaries)


(23-May-19) Get involved in testing pg12 Beta (NOT FOR PRODUCTION USE)

(10-May-19) Windows & OSX sandboxes are no longer supported. You can still do upgrades from the command line for binaries installed with the one-click installer.


Run BigSQL PGC Commands

Note that versions of PostgreSQL are presently pg10, pg11 & pg12.

To install and run the PostgreSQL version of your choice type:

  cd bigsql
  pgc install pg11
  pgc start pg11
