PostgreSQL 9.5 Script for Debian Jessie (8.3)

Adding on to the CentOS PostgreSQL 9.5 scripts below, I've added a version for Debian Jessie (8.3).

Please read the README and use only on a clean install!


As with the CentOS scripts, it adds some basic security steps:

  • Creates a minimally privilaged user (pgadmin - change to whatever you like)
  • Disables root log in
  • Sets the SSH port to 3838 (change to whatever you like).
  • Sets root, postgres, admin, and ssl pass to 32 chars
  • Installs IP tables (if you want to use firwalld, comment the appropriate lines as noted).
  • Configures Webmin for managing PostgreSQL
  • Installs a self-signed SSL for PostgreSQL
  • Updates pga_hba.conf to MD5 and SSL
  • Updates postgresql.conf for SSL and remote connections.

Once completed, it will display the new passwords for pgadmin, root, postgres, and ssl as well as write them to an auth.txt file

: Example Output at End of Script
