Install postgres on rhel 7

Mageshwaran Janarthanam
Hi Team,

I have question on the postgres install process. Tried to read the archives but couldn't find it.

I wanted to install postgres server via rpm and wanted to store the binaries under non default location like /pgbin.

Please advise...

Thank you

The rpm package (at least not those available at yum.postgresql.org) are
not relocatable:

  rpm -qpi postgresql12-12.0-1PGDG.rhel7.x86_64.rpm  | grep Relocations
  Relocations : (not relocatable)

So unfortunately, you'll have to build your own packages, or something
like that.

regards
