PHP Builder: Getting Started with Postgres on Red Hat 7.0
March 18, 2001
"I have read several posts and noticed the large number of questions about Postgres so I decided to start from the beginning on how to get a PostgreSQL Database up and running. I am also going to try to cover some of the most common questions about startup and configuration."
"... I highly recommend setting passwords for access to any database and setting passwords for any of the users that may be created, most importantly any user that has rights to create other users as this user has access to the entire postgres system. This includes the user postgres. This could be devistating to your system as postgres can run C programs as procedures. Do I need to say any more?"
