Hosting PostgreSQL Databases


PostgreSQL is a database management system based on Unix platform. It allows you to add, access, and process stored data. The SQL part of PostgreSQL stands for "Structured Query Language" - the most common standardized language used to access databases.

 

Creating PostgreSQL User(s)

Unlike other databases, a PostgreSQL database cannot be created without a user. You must stick to the following sequence:

  1. Create a PostgreSQL user.
  2. Create a database.

Note: The first user in the list of users is the owner of a database, however the database can be used by others who obtain permissions from the owner.

To create a PostgreSQL database user, do the following:

  1. Click the PostgreSQL Server icon on your control panel home page.
  2. At the bottom of the page that shows, click the Add user icon to start creating a new user.


     

  3. Fill the Add PostgreSQL user form on the PostgreSQL Users page.

  

Deleting Users and Changing Their Passwords

To delete the PostgreSQL database user, do the following:

  1. Click the PostgreSQL Server icon on your control panel home page.
  2. Click the Trash icon next to the user name on the PostgreSQL user management page.

Important: Trash icon appears only next to non-owners. The owner of a database cannot be deleted, unless you remove the PostgreSQL database.

To change the user password, do the following:

  1. Click the PostgreSQL Server icon on your control panel home page.
  2. Click the Change icon next to the name of the user.
  3. Enter a new password, confirm it, and click Change.

Important: the user privileges can be changed by means of phpPgAdmin.

 

Creating PostgreSQL Databases

Having at least one user, you can create a PostgreSQL database. This user will become the owner of this database.

To create a database, do the following:

  1. Click the PostgreSQL Server icon on your control panel home page.
  2. Click Add Database in the PostgreSQL Databases section:


     

  3. Enter the name and description of the database:


     

  4. Click Submit and save the information.

 

Editing PostgreSQL Databases and User Privileges

You can edit the content of your databases and user privileges using the phpPgAdmin utility that comes with your control panel.

To run phpPgAdmin, do the following:

  1. Click the phpPgAdmin icon on the control panel home page.
  2. Click the name of the database you would like to edit.

You can also start this utility from the PGSQL database management page:

  1. Click the PostgreSQL Server icon on your control panel home page.
  2. Click the Edit icon for the database you are going to edit:


     

  3. In the form that appears, click Built in phpPgAdmin control panel to start editing your database:


     

  4. Follow the instructions of the phpPgAdmin control panel to edit your PgSQL DB.

 

Changing PgSQL Disk Quota

PostgreSQL disk quota is the maximum allowed size of one PostgreSQL database. If you exceed this quota, you'll be charged for overlimit at a different price.

To change PgSQL disk quota, do the following:

  1. Click the PostgreSQL Server icon on your control panel home page.
  2. Click PGSQL Database.
  3. Click the Change icon in the Quota field:


     

  4. Enter the new quota.
