PostgreSQL is a free and open-source object-relational database management system. It is useful for both small applications and large public applications with many concurrent users. This guide will show you how to deploy a SkySilk server for PostgreSQL hosting.

How to set up a PostgreSQL server with SkySilk VPS in 8 Steps

If you want to restart the install process on your VM you can use the following command; 'turnkey-init'.

1. Deploy a SkySilk PostgreSQL VPS Template.

2. Login to your VPS. SSH into your VPS using root@ipaddress and the password you set in the SkySilk dashboard. If you are connecting from a Unix-like machine (Mac OS or Linux), or by using PuTTY with Windows then the command to connect is simply:

ssh [user]@[ip address]

where [user] is your username, typically root, and [ip address] is the IP address of the virtual machine.

# for example:

ssh root@204.44.81.xx
