Looking at the dirtsand database structure

Postby J'Kla » Mon Jun 11, 2018 1:36 am

So far I have only been able to use this on an Ubuntu 32bit Desktop 16.04 Installation but this has enabled me to look at the underlying database structure.

The steps followed

I built a new server running Ubuntu 32bit Desktop on a PC with 1gig memory Using a Pentium 4 chip.

Once built I opened a Terminal window and followed the steps to install a LAN based dirtsand shard.

I crated one user account and tested the shard.

Logged in as dirtsand and again in a terminal window I ran the following code.

Code: Select all
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ $(lsb_release -cs)-pgdg main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list'
sudo apt install wget ca-certificates
wget --quiet -O - https://www.postgresql.org/media/keys/ACCC4CF8.asc | sudo apt-key add
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install pgadmin3

I do not know why but the forum does some strange line wrap at >> the first two lines are in fact one line of code and the >> is part of that one line if you highlite the code cut and paste it into a text editor it looks OK just thought I should mention this as I had issues till I figured out this was One line of code.

It looks perfect in preview it just goes strange when it is submitted. Go figure. ;)

This is a piece of software that allows you to look at a postgresql database structure in the same way that phpMyAdmin will allow you to examine a MySQL database.

The database does not need to be running there is a version 4 but I was not able to get this to work and there is a Windows install version but I was unable to get this to see the database running on a different computer.

This may be possible I just do not know how to achieve this.

pgAdmin III allows you to see the structure of the vault underlying the shard although I have yet to figure out how to look at the content or change anything.

I do not know if this will be a useful tool but it is one that may have some use in the future.
