It took me a little while, but I got PostgreSQL 9.3 to work in Haiku R1B1 32 bit. I tried version 9.6 but for some reason it wasn’t installing all the needed commands such as initdb, createdb, etc. All 9.6 seemed to install was the psql command. I’ll try 9.6 again some other time.
I logged what I did here in case someone in the future may want a quick guide for setting PostgreSQL up in Haiku. I searched for a quick reference on installing PostgreSQL on Haiku but I couldn’t find one. So I created one.
I also manage to compile and successfully run the C example program testlibpq.c for testing a connection to PostgreSQL. I couldn’t get Paladin to compile it, but gcc in the Terminal compiled it fine.
Does anyone know where to get code or an App for load testing a PostgreSQL database? I’d like to see how much it can take on Haiku.
Cheers for R1B1
