Different version of PostgreSQL on same machine?

P: n/a
Hello

In my development area I want to install and run
various versions of Postgresql on the same machine
(sorry....but acute shortage of hardware) listening on
different port.

Is it possible?

Any help...

Laram

Certainly - I believe the Debian packages might support this natively now, but
in any case so long as you compile from source it is straight-forward. You'll
need to specify unique values for:
1. binaries
2. data ($PGDATA)
3. port for internet connection (default is 5432)

Worth searching the archives for this, since this question was asked by
someone else a few weeks ago.
