Install Postgresql 12

VT Docs rpm does not have a dependency on PostgreSQL. However, VT Docs does require PostgreSQL to function correctly. We support PostgreSQL version 10 - 13 but recommend using a minimum version of PostgreSQL 12. The below instructions are how to install PostgreSQL 12 prior to the VT Docs install.

Enable the Postgresql 12 repository and install the Postgresql packages:

sudo amazon-linux-extras enable postgresql12
sudo yum install -y postgresql-server postgresql-contrib

Enter Postgresql bash shell and initialize the DB:
sudo su - postgres
/usr/bin/postgresql-setup --initdb

Exit the Postgresql bash shell:

Enable and start Postgresl service:
sudo systemctl enable --now postgresql

Verify service is active:
systemctl status postgresql


Install VT Docs rpm:
sudo yum install -y visiblethread-docs-4.4.3-1.x86_64.rpm
