These documents cover the administration of the Unit PostgreSQL service, comprising the Teaching and Research servers
This page is intended to assist computing staff in server administration, and is unlikely to be of use to users of our our database service. Please see our PostgreSQL Computing.Help page for user-facing documentation.
Each postgresql server consists of two components: the database server itself, and the account management configuration provided by
pgluser. The service is defined by the
dice/options/postgresql-[teaching|research]-server headers, which inherit from
dice/options/postgresql-RAT-server most of the basic postgresql and pgluser configuration. User management procedures are covered separately, below.
Please contact us with any comments or corrections.
