As part of my coursework I am going to install PostgreSQL to perform test queries on. PostgreSQL can be downloaded from:

Click download, and then choose you OS. My OS is Windows 10.

PG Download


Run the installer after the download has completed (Roughly 60MB).

Set the installation directory and data directory location for your DB:



Install Dir

Set the superuser password for your DB:

Set PW

Set the port for you DB. The default will work fine unless it conflicts with that port on your machine:

Set Port

Lastly, just finish the install:

Finish Install


The end…
