It's looking good its in the process of building a load of stuff as a consequence of running the make install on the dirtsand/build folder.
It does look like I am ready to explore the database setup part.
I have also now managed to remotely log into this new server with putty on a ssh connection so I can now work from my normal workstation.
I am now following the instructions on setting up a server as found in the instructions.
I went to run the first command
- Code: Select all
sudo -u postgres psql -d template1
This failed I had assumed that the Ubuntu install had already implemented an install of postgresql it was but a trice to run
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install postgresql
Once I remembered the semicolons to end of each input line I was cooking with gas.
I now come to the UUID functionality confusion paragraph.
I am using an Ubuntu distribution so I install the contrib package as suggested. Now it gets perplexing I am presented with the following.
If your distribution does not provide a contrib or uuid-ossp bundle, you can get it and build it yourself from the sources provided at: http://www.ossp.org/pkg/lib/uuid/
Once you have the ossp, you can add it to the dirtsand database by running the import script:
contrib or uuid-ossp bundle it then tells me I have to add ossp
I looked down the path /usr/share/postgresql/10/contrib/ and there is no ossp there is sepgsql.sql
I am now tired and confused when faced with or instructions it is useful to have a clear path for each of the options in the "or" indication.
These instructions are currently a mess I have installed posrgresql-contrib.
At which point do I pick up the following instructions?
This is probably because I am hitting midnight in what has been a very long day.
At this time I am assuming that because I have postgresql-contrib I can jump to the the "Set up the dirtsand database" or will I need to do the CREATE EXTENSION "uuid-ossp" even though it appears not to exist in the contrib folder.
I am going to bed in the vague hope that some clarification appears here whilst I sleep.
I can't complain I am already about 400% further on than I was a week ago.
I am extremely grateful for all the help I am getting here and I know we will end with a beautifully clear instruction set in the end. at which point I can go back to creating unclear and puzzling Uru ages.
