PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management
system (ORDBMS) based on POSTGRES. With more than 15 years of

Before you can run postgresql you'll need to create the database;
please see README.SBo.

You need a "postgres" user and group prior to building postgresql.
Something like this will suffice for most systems:
groupadd -g 209 postgres
useradd -u 209 -g 209 -d /var/lib/pgsql postgres
