EnterpriseDB: What's in the Install Package

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

The install packages for the various platforms are very similar.  All platforms include a readme file, the binary installation executable and a PDF file with some EnterpriseDB Network installation instructions.  As mentioned above, the Linux installation package also includes the pre-Install.sh shell script. 

The Windows binary installation package ends in an "EXE" extension.  You must have administration privileges to install EnterpriseDB.  Just double click the executable to run it.

In Linux, the binary installation package ends in a "bin" extension.  You must have administration privileges to install EnterpriseDB.  In the Kubuntu distribution of Linux, I used sudo. 

The installation package will create a new, unprivileged user.  This user will be used to start and stop the database and perform other administrative functions.  During the install, you can choose to use an already existing user but it must not be a privileged user. 

Installation Walk-through

You can download the installation package without being registered for the EnterpriseDB Network.  However, to install the entire package you must be registered.  As registration is painless and free, I would recommend that you register before starting the installation process.

Once you have extracted the installation binary from the archive, run the program.  You must run the installation as an administrative user.  That means you must have root access in Linux or be a machine administrator in Windows.

The installation program is Java based.  The screens are nearly identical on the various OS platforms with a few minor variations between Windows and Linux.  Depending on your hardware, it may take a minute or two to see a screen when you first launch the installer.

When the installer welcome screen pops up, Figure 2.1, you will see the version of the software that you are installing.  Press the next button.

Figure 2.1: EnterpriseDB Welcome to Install

To continue the installation process, you must accept the EnterpriseDB Software License, Figure 2.2.  Nothing earth shattering here.  This is the normal legalese that comes with all software, open source or otherwise.

Figure 2.2: EnterpriseDB License

As I am not a lawyer, I will just say that you should read it and if you agree, select the "I accept" radio button and hit the next button.

EnterpriseDB can be installed with a "Redwood" flavor or a "PostgreSQL" flavor, Figure 2.3.  Redwood is a reference to Redwood City, California, the home of Oracle Corporation.


This is an excerpt from the book "EnterpriseDB: The Definitive Reference" by Rampant TechPress.
