FAQ
Hi,

When running the Postgresql module the database installed by default is 8.4 what we need is 9.1 where do i define the version to be installed by puppet.

If i edit the params,pp like;

$client_package_name = 'postgresql91'
$server_package_name = 'postgresql91'

The 9.1 is being installed but i get some errors like these;

Execution of '/sbin/service postgresql start' returned 1

Thanks in forward for you help.

    On more thing the postgresql-9.1 is installed but when you run service
    postgresql-9.1 start you get

    /var/lib/pgsql/9.1/data is missing, Use "service postgresql-9.1.4 initdb"
    to initialize the cluster first.

    Any idea ?

    I think i figured it out in the Postgresql module edit the params.pp so
    that it looks like this;

    case $::osfamily {

    'RedHat': {

    $service_name = 'postgresql-9.1'

    $client_package_name = 'postgresql91'

    $server_package_name = 'postgresql91-server'

    $needs_initdb = true

    $initdb_path = '/usr/pgsql-9.1/bin/initdb'

    $createdb_path = '/usr/pgsql-9.1/bin/createdb'

    $psql_path = '/usr/pgsql-9.1/bin/psql'

    $datadir = '/var/lib/pgsql/9.1/data/'

    $pg_hba_conf_path = '/var/lib/pgsql/9.1/data/pg_hba.conf'

    $postgresql_conf_path = '/var/lib/pgsql/9.1/data/postgresql.conf'

    $firewall_supported = true

    $persist_firewall_command = '/sbin/iptables-save >
    /etc/sysconfig/iptables'
    }

    Hello OSX007,

    You are on the right track, for sure. The goal of the params.pp is to set
    default values for those things and allow you to override them in your own
    manifests. It's definitely OK for you to edit params.pp directly if you
    know for sure that the settings you've specified will always be the ones
    that you want, but otherwise you should be able to override them in your
    own manifests and pass them in without modifying the module's params.pp
    directly. This would allow you to potentially use the module to manage
    both 8.x and 9.x instances.

    I'd love to put together a "test" manifest that illustrates how to do what
    you're doing w/o modifying params.pp directly, and submit a pull request to
    the module so that it will be easier for other folks to figure out how to
    do it in the future. I'd also love to provide a single parameter like
    "postgres_version" that you could just set to "9.1" and then add code to
    the module that would switch all of those path variables to the correct
    values for you. I hope to continue submitting pull requests with features
    like that over time, but if you have any such submissions you'd like to
    make yourself, I'm sure they'd be welcomed!

    Thanks or the feedback, Jeremy. Knowing that there are folks out there who
    would find it useful helps me to prioritize :) I still have this on my
    to-do list, and hope to get a chance to work on it sometime in the next
    week or so. I'll send another response to this thread as soon as I do.
