SQL database server.

Overview

PostgreSQL for Mac is a collection of graphical tools for using and managing PostgreSQL servers, as well as the server itself installable on any Mac running OS X version 10.5.x.

Also included as part of the package is the PGSQLKit framework, an open source framework for developers to leverage the power of PostgreSQL in their own applications.

After many years of development, PostgreSQL has become feature-complete in many areas. This release shows a targeted approach to adding features (e.g., authentication, monitoring, space reuse), and adds capabilities defined in the later SQL standards.

What's new in PostgreSQL

Note: Although Finder indicates that this is version 12, the developer states that this is version 12.1.1.

  • This release contains a variety of fixes from 12.0. For information about new features in major release 12, see Section E.2.

Support for version 11 includes 10.12 to 10.14 only. For version 10, it goes from 10.10 to 10.12. At least in the primary installers, the offers by EnterpriseDB. Is this due to the included extras, or directly by PostgresSQL?

The download link points to the 9.0.0 version not 9.0.1. You have to go to the developer's site to download the current version.

1. The title of this entry should specifically say "PostgreSQL for Mac" in order to distiguish it from any official PostgreSQL listing. 2. If you're going to download or link to this, it's better to do it from their SourceForge page because their web site isn't as speedy: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pgsqlformac/

Both are true, this is not the official distribution from PostgreSQL, it does predate the one that is linked from PostgreSQL.org. The one provided on PostgreSQL.org is built by David Page at EnterpriseDB, and is also quite good. No confusion was intended as to the authenticity of this build. There is also a third binary distribution of PostgreSQL for the Mac published by Marc Liyange. Each have different targets. As for download speed, the SourceForge clusters are significantly faster than the druware links. Something about money and bandwidth. SourceForge has large sums of cash behind it. Druware, not so much. More like starving artists.

There's no need to be defensive. My post was a statement of facts, not criticism.

Indeed the easiest way to install Postgres on a Mac. And it has a proper control panel to start/stop the database.

By far the easiest way to have an postgreSQL server running in no time... And I am using mine intensively since then ;-) Great job

Developer, please note: 1) uninstaller is missing 2) query tool installed by default (during the server install) is BAD - it seems to have been compiled as a PPC only, and not as a universal binary, so it won't run on my Intel machine. 3) documentation provided needs urgent updating, including: instructions for manual uninstall (in case the uninstaller goes missing again, or user is unable to run it), instructions for drag-install of client tools, and a basic troubleshooting guide (telling users what to do if the server does not seem to launch) Your efforts to bring PostgreSQL to the Mac are certainly appreciated. Please, keep up the good work.

On my system, Query Tool for Postgres, and Create User both crash immediately. The other three tools (Create & Backup Database and Service Manager) seem to work ok.

Both downloads on both download locations have been updated to fix this (boneheaded) issue. The problem was twofold. The build machine had an errant copy of the binaries that included a bad build, and the final copy phase had an issue on several of the GUI tools. Both problems have been resolved. Sorry for the confusion.

What part is not installed as Universal? I'm trying to isolate which part, the server and command line tools, as well as the GUI tools appear to be Universal here. There *is* a problem with a couple of the tools that will be fixed today where the connection framework failed the copy which didn't show up o nteh QA machines as they also have the /Library/Frameworks/ vesion of the frameworks installed (oops).

Ah, problem found and will be fixed in shortly. In the transition from Xcode to Xcodeproj the PPC build setting got lost. I has now been fixed in SVN and will be rebuilt and updated in the package this afternoon.
