Installing pglogical

Once pre-requisites are complete, installing pglogical is simply a matter of executing the following for your version of PostgreSQL:

  • PostgreSQL 9.4: sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.4-pglogical
  • PostgreSQL 9.5: sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.5-pglogical
  • PostgreSQL 9.6: sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.6-pglogical
  • PostgreSQL 10: sudo apt-get install postgresql-10-pglogical
  • PostgreSQL 11: sudo apt-get install postgresql-11-pglogical


Installing pglogical from Source Code

Source code installs are the same as for any other PostgreSQL extension built using PGXS. Make sure the directory containing pg_config from the PostgreSQL release is listed in your PATH environment variable. You might have to install a -dev or -devel package for your PostgreSQL release from your package manager if you don’t havepg_config. Then run make USE_PGXS=1 to compile, and make USE_PGXS=1 install to install. You might need to use sudo for the install step. e.g. for a typical Fedora or RHEL 7 install, assuming you’re using the packages for PostgreSQL:

sudo dnf install postgresql96-devel PATH=/usr/pgsql-9.6/bin:$PATH make USE_PGXS=1 clean all sudo PATH=/usr/pgsql-9.6/bin:$PATH make USE_PGXS=1 install


Note that you must install pglogical on all servers that will act as publishers or subscribers. So if you’re replicating from 9.4 to 9.5 you’d install postgresql94-pglogical on the 9.4 server and postgresql95-pglogical on the 9.5 server.
