    Unanswered: How to Install Postgres & create db on Unix

    I have to install Postgres and create a small db on a unix box, however i'm a novice to both Unix cmds and postgres. My background is sql servers 2005-2012.

    So any help or help to documentation in the right direction would help me out greatly.

    -Are there any step by step documentation how to set a Postgres db on a unix box?

    - any videos showing these steps?
    - or can someone srite out the steps I need to step to achieve this task of installing and creating a postgres db?


    Thanks in advance

    What's wrong with the manual?
    http://www.postgresql.org/docs/curre...c/runtime.html

    or the Postgres Wiki
    https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Det...llation_guides

    or this link: http://bit.ly/TEsYq2
    I will not read nor answer questions where the SQL code is messy and not formatted properly using [code] tags: http://www.dbforums.com/misc.php?do=bbcode#code

    Well I did google it(actually I used Bing), but never the less. I'm on a windows machine, and I have to access the unix box and instal and create this db. But like I said I have no idea how to even access a Unix box. I mean is there a GUI, do I command prompt, telnet, etc.. and all the instructions seemed to reference all different type of Unix software with different names
