    As you know there are lots of PostgreSQL users. We have some customers that are using PostgreSQL. But cPanel's pgsql support is very bad.

    For example cpanel always gets the latest mysql and installs it, but as for pgsql, it can only use the db which comes with the distribution.

    Some of the bug reports are closed and cpanel staff said you have to install pgsql from distro. For example we have Centos 3.5 why we must use the old postgresql, why cpanel don't use the new pgsql? On the other side, phppgadmin is very very old. I don't know why it is not upgrading to the latest.

    We want to use latest PostgreSQL as MYSQL.

    I know we can install latest pgsql, there are also some docs for this but we want it officially.

    This is posted in the wrong place. As plainly stated in one (or more) stickies, we don't monitor the forums, they are primarily for community benefit.

    If you want to influence this decision, open a bugzilla feature request (http://bugzilla.cpanel.net), outlining your ideas. Once the request is filed, vote on it. Post the link to the request in the forum and encourage other like minded individuals to vote on it.

    We do listen to customer demand on such things, but we have to see real demand. Keep in mind that we support a number of older platforms. Can PostgreSQL 8+ be compiled/installed easily on RedHat 7.3 (for example) without upgrading half the system to newer software versions?

    Rmember, it's not a matter of 'cPanel dislikes software X' it's 'is there real customer demand to justify the resource allocation for this endeavor?'

    Hi Kenneth,

    Thank you for the answer.

    There are lots of bug requests at bugzilla but most of them closed with saying use the pgsql from distro. Now i am thinking that if i create a new bugzilla request, it will be closed and marked as duplicate entry.

    Now i created a new entry.

    Please post your comments.

    I guess postgresql support is lower because it has fewer users than mysql ?
