PostgreSQL Installation
Use following command to install PostgreSQL:
sudo apt install postgresql
The account used to connect the database server must have "superuser" privileges since it must create the databases.

  • Create superuser: create user wfservice superuser password 'wfservice';
  • Quit console: \q

  • PrimaryServerID - Identity of the maser server (to be specified on the redundant server)
  • SecondaryServerAddress - IP address of the redundant server (to be specified on the master server)
