Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade postgresql -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade postgresql -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

- name: Install postgresql
  win_chocolatey:
    name: postgresql
    version: '15.0.1'
    source: INTERNAL REPO URL
    state: present

See docs at https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/modules/win_chocolatey_module.html.


chocolatey_package 'postgresql' do
  action    :install
  source   'INTERNAL REPO URL'
  version  '15.0.1'
end

See docs at https://docs.chef.io/resource_chocolatey_package.html.


cChocoPackageInstaller postgresql
{
    Name     = "postgresql"
    Version  = "15.0.1"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"
}

Requires cChoco DSC Resource. See docs at https://github.com/chocolatey/cChoco.


package { 'postgresql':
  ensure   => '15.0.1',
  provider => 'chocolatey',
  source   => 'INTERNAL REPO URL',
}

Requires Puppet Chocolatey Provider module. See docs at https://forge.puppet.com/puppetlabs/chocolatey.

Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 15 Oct 2022.

Description

PostgreSQL is an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS) based on POSTGRE, developed at the University of California at Berkeley Computer Science Department. POSTGRES pioneered many concepts that only became available in some commercial database systems much later.

PostgreSQL can be used, modified, and distributed by anyone free of charge for any purpose, be it private, commercial, or academic.

Features

Package parameters

  • /AllowRemote - Allow remote connections with username and password from all hosts by adding appropriate lines in the pg_hba.conf
  • /Password - Password to be assigned to the postgres user. If omitted, it will be generated and shown in the install output. PostgreSql installer ignores this parameter if there is existing installation.
  • /Port - Server port, if not set it defaults to 5432 or the first available port after it.
  • /NoPath - Do not add PostgreSql bin directory to the PATH.

Other parameters could be set via --ia argument, for example, to set custom components:

choco install postgresql13 --params '/Password:test /Port:5433' --ia '--enable-components server,commandlinetools'

Check all installer options by adding --help as command line argument.

Notes

  • Test installation (specify your password):
    $Env:PGPASSWORD='test'; '\conninfo' | psql -Upostgres
    This should output:
    You are connected to database "postgres" as user "postgres" on host "localhost" at port "5432"
  • This package will install PostgreSQL to $Env:ProgramFiles\PostgreSQL\[MajorVersion].
  • If you have problems during installation see troubleshooting page.
  • If you didn't specify password during setup and didn't record the generated one, you need manually reset it using the following steps:
    • Open file data\pg_hba.conf in PostgreSql installation directory
    • Change METHOD to trust and restart service with Restart-Service postgresql*
    • Execute "alter user postgres with password '[my password]';" | psql -Upostgres
    • Revert back data\pg_hba.conf to METHOD md5 and restart service
  • If you have trouble selecting specific install components see this issue

Virtual package

Each major version has its own package: postgresql<Version>

Virtual package postgresql also contains all versions that depend on adequate major version, but using it without problems require some special choco parameters.

To propagate package parameters to dependencies use --params-global choco install parameter with virtual package postgresql. Assuming latest version is 12, to provide password the following two examples result in identical installation:

cinst postgresql --params '/Password:test' --params-global
cinst postgresql12 --params '/Password:test'

To uninstall dependent package use --force-dependencies:

# The following two examples are identical
cuninst postgresql --force-dependencies
cuninst postgresql12 postgresql

# This example uninstalls only postgresql virtual package and not postgresql12
cuninst postgresql

To force reinstallation via virtual package use --force-dependencies:

# The following two examples are identical
cinst postgresql --force --force-dependencies
cinst postgresql12 --force --force-dependencies

# This will reinstall only postgresql virtual package and not its dependency postgresql12
cinst postgresql -force

# This one is different then the first one as vcredist140 dependency is not reinstalled
cinst postgresql12 --force

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
