|Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING|
Affects: users of databases/postgresql* and other software using PostgreSQL to run
The default version of PostgreSQL has been switched from 11 to 12.
The upgrade procedure can use up twice the space the databases
currently needs. If you have a big amount of stored data take a
closer look at the manpage of pg_upgrade for avoidance and/or
speedup of the upgrade.
The upgrade instructions consider a basic usage and do not match
complex scenarios like replication, sharding, or similar.
First stop your PostgreSQL, create PostgreSQL-binaries and backup your data.
If you have another Version of PostgreSQL installed, for example 11.9, your
files are named according to this.
# service postgresql stop
# pkg create postgresql11-server postgresql11-contrib
# mkdir /tmp/pg-upgrade
# tar xf postgresql11-server-11.9.txz -C /tmp/pg-upgrade
# tar xf postgresql11-contrib-11.9.txz -C /tmp/pg-upgrade
# pkg delete -f databases/postgresql11-server databases/postgresql11-contrib databases/postgresql11-client
Now update PostgreSQL:
# pkg install databases/postgresql12-server databases/postgresql12-contrib
# pkg upgrade
# portmaster databases/postgresql12-server databases/postgresql12-contrib
# portmaster -a
# portinstall databases/postgresql12-server databases/postgresql12-contrib
# portupgrade -a
After installing the new PostgreSQL version you need to convert
all your databases to new version:
# su -l postgres -c "/usr/local/bin/initdb --encoding=utf-8 --lc-collate=C -D /var/db/postgres/data12 -U postgres"
# su -l postgres -c "pg_upgrade -b /tmp/pg-upgrade/usr/local/bin/ -d /var/db/postgres/data11/ -B /usr/local/bin/ -D /var/db/postgres/data12/ -U postgres "
Now the migration is finished. You can start PostgreSQL again with:
# service postgresql start
1) The default user changed from "pgsql" to "postgres" in 11. The migration steps above now assume
the "postgres" database user and FreeBSD user.
2) See the updating entry 20190829 if you are updating from a release prior to 11.
3) If you use non-default initdb options, you have to adjust the initdb-command accordingly
