P: n/a
Howdy:
Silly questions -

Is it possible (or, has anyone got brave enough) to run
PostgreSQL on Windows Server 2003?

If so, what does it entail and how do I start?

Thanks.

See the FAQ entry for Win32. You can use Cygwin.

The best and easiest way for normal folks is likely gonna be to use
cygwin, which has postgresql as one of its many packages. Make sure and
install cygipc and you should be set. Don't expect stellar performance.

Bruce and company are working on the native port, due out "real soon now".

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)
