Installing on Red Hat / Centos / Scientific Linux
The best place to get the latest binaries for both PostgreSQL and PostGIS is from the PostgreSQL download page Redhat Derivatives.
- Select the PostgreSQL version
- Select a “Platform” and an “Architecture”.
- Copy and run the setup script as root.
Further, run the following to add in PostGIS and dependencies.
# Install EPEL repo RPM: dnf -y install epel-release # Enable PowerTools repo (required for some of the dependencies): dnf -y config-manager --set-enabled PowerTools # you might need to do this instead for the Rockys dnf config-manager --enable crb # for Rocky 8 and above might need to do this as well crb enable # Now, you can finally install PostGIS # Select the right PostGIS and PostgreSQL versions dnf -y install postgis34_16 systemctl restart postgresql-16
