PostgreSQL 8.3 EBS Standalone v0.10

Open in Dashboard

Published by Wopata on Oct 29, 2010Revision: 2


EBS-backed standalone PostgreSQL 8.3 server. We are currently working on a Pgpool-II + streaming replication server template for added reliability.


  • Add an EBS volume to the server and set it to "attach on boot time".
  • List extensions in the DB_EXTENSIONS input of the server. Currently PostGIS is supported, enter postgis to enable it.
  • Specify the device name of the volume (e.g. /dev/sdj) at the DB_EBS_DEVICE input of the server
  • This device shall contain a PostgreSQL data directory - if it does not exist at boot time, the initialization script will run initdb. If you have added PostGIS, a GIS-enabled template database with the name template_gis will be created at this point.

You can back up and restore your database with two operational scripts (make sure to set the BACKUP_S3_PATH input).
