Directions after Install


To create a database instance, after install do
 sudo mkdir -p /opt/local/var/db/postgresql93/defaultdb
 sudo chown postgres:postgres /opt/local/var/db/postgresql93/defaultdb
 sudo su postgres -c '/opt/local/lib/postgresql93/bin/initdb -D /opt/local/var/db/postgresql93/defaultdb' 


Caviats from Homebrew

To migrate existing data from a previous major version of PostgreSQL run:
  brew postgresql-upgrade-database

To have launchd start postgresql now and restart at login:
  brew services start postgresql
Or, if you don't want/need a background service you can just run:
  pg_ctl -D /usr/local/var/postgres start

Create user

$createuser --interactive chris_psql_user
Shall the new role be a superuser? (y/n) y
Shall the new role be allowed to create databases? (y/n) y
Shall the new role be allowed to create more new roles? (y/n) y

Create DB

createdb lgfreezer

Change password

  • psql -d lgfreezer -h localhost -U chris_psql_user
  • lgfreezer=> alter user <username> with encrypted password '<password>';

Using in Python

import psycopg2

import sqlalchemy 

import pandas as pd

conn_string = "host='localhost' dbname='lgfreezer' user='chris_psql_user2' password='sadkjhasfkljhdas'"

conn = psycopg2.connect(conn_string)


query = open('freezer_locations.sql')

locations = pd.read_sql_query(, conn )

Turn server off

pg_ctl stop -D tempdb_dir/
