PostgreSQL Core Distribution

The core of the PostgreSQL object-relational database management system is available in several source and binary formats. The full package includes:

  • The core server with full documentation (html, man)
  • Several command line tools (e.g. psql, pg_dump, pg_restore)
  • C library (libpq) and embedded C processor (ecpg)
  • Several server-side procedural languages (e.g. plpgsql, pltcl, plperl)
  • Several popular add-on packages (e.g. metaphone, tsearch2, pgcrypto)

You can download the software from an FTP mirror using our FTP Browser or via BitTorrent. If you prefer, you can browse the FTP mirrors directly.
