How To: Manually install PostgreSQL 9.3 for use with FTK 5.5+

Introduction: If a customer is having problems with the AD PostgreSQL 9.3 installer, the following steps can be used to manually install PostgreSQL for use with FTK.

Procedure:

  1. Download and install Python 3.2.3.  Make sure you install the 64-bit version if you have a 64-bit operating system.
  2. Download and install PostgreSQL 9.3.  Make sure you install the 64-bit version if you have a 64-bit operating system.
  3. (Recommended) When asked where to install the data directory, if possible, select a separate hard drive that has the least amount of I/O traffic (i.e. not your OS drive).
  4. (Recommended) Do not install or use Stackbuilder to install additional drivers, features, or tools.
  5. Open services.msc.
  6. Stop the postgres service.
  7. Navigate to the PostgreSQL data folder and edit the file "pg_hba.conf" to reflect the following changes (this will allow any IP to connect to PostgreSQL so that the Evidence Processing Engine can connect to the DB):
    # TYPE  DATABASE        USER            CIDR-ADDRESS            METHOD
    
    # IPv4 local connections:
    host    all             all             127.0.0.1/32            md5
    host	all	 	all		0.0.0.0/0 		md5
    # IPv6 local connections:
    # comment out the below lines if the machine does not support IPv6
    host    all             all             ::1/128                 md5
    host	all		all		fe80::/64		md5
  8. Start the postgres service.
  9. Open FTK and have it add the PostgreSQL DB.
