Ubuntu 16.04 - Install PostgreSQL 10

Postgresql 10 has been out for a while now. One of the features that was added that I'm pretty keen on is better support for parallel queries which is worth migrating away from MySQL for.

Steps

Copy, paste and execute the commands below:

echo 'deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ xenial-pgdg main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list
wget --quiet -O - https://www.postgresql.org/media/keys/ACCC4CF8.asc | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install postgresql-10 -y

Check Version

If you want to check what version of PostgreSQL you are now running, use the following command:

sudo -u postgres psql postgres -c 'SELECT version()' | grep PostgreSQL
