Book Description

PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source, enterprise database.

This PostgreSQL 9 Administration Cookbook LITE book describes key aspects of the PostgreSQL open source database system. The book will help a sysadmin or DBA to get started with key administration issues in PostgreSQL, going from an initial connection to a server, finding out about where your server stores vital information, to removing, adding, or moving objects and changing database schema. This hands-on guide will assist developers working on live databases supporting web or enterprise software applications.
