Installing Postgres JDBC Driver
You must install the required Postgres JDBC driver.
Download, extract, and copy the JDBC driver, renamed, to /usr/share/java/. If the target directory does not yet exist, create it.
Installing the Postgres JDBC Driver
- Install the PostgreSQL JDBC driver. If you would like to use the PostgreSQL JDBC
driver version shipped with the OS repositories, run the following command:
yum install postgresql-jdbc*
You can also download the JDBC driver from the official PostgreSQL JDBC Driver website – https://jdbc.postgresql.org/download.html.
- Rename the Postgres JDBC driver
postgresql-connector-java.jarand copy it to the
/usr/share/javadirectory. The following copy command can be used if the Postgres JDBC driver
.jarfile is installed from the OS repositories:
cp /usr/share/java/postgresql-jdbc.jar /usr/share/java/postgresql-connector-java.jar
- Confirm that the .jar file is in the Java share directory:
- Change the access mode of the .jar file to 644:
chmod 644 /usr/share/java/postgresql-connector-java.jar
