Multiple installations on one Linux machine

Multiple installations on one Linux machine

Multiple installations on one Linux machine

Hi.  I am trying to create separate postgres installations on a single Linux machine.  i.e. Not just running separate postmasters on separate clusters.

We utilize RPM to install postgres with our product from DVD:

/bin/rpm -i /mnt/cdrom/a1/rpms/postgresql-libs-7.4.13-2.RHEL4.1.i386.rpm
/bin/rpm -i /mnt/cdrom/a1/rpms/postgresql-7.4.13-2.RHEL4.1.i386.rpm
/bin/rpm -i /mnt/cdrom/a1/rpms/postgresql-server-7.4.13-2.RHEL4.1.i386.rpm
/bin/rpm -i /mnt/cdrom/a1/rpms/postgresql-jdbc-7.4.13-2.RHEL4.1.i386.rpm
/bin/rpm -i /mnt/cdrom/a1/rpms/postgresql-contrib-7.4.13-2.RHEL4.1.i386.rpm
/bin/cp -f /mnt/cdrom/a1/a2/postgresql.sysconfig /etc/sysconfig/pgsql/postgresql

We're pretty sure all we need to do is make copies of everything that's installed (call it the "fresh postgres installation inventory") during a fresh postgres RPM installation and then create/configure our databases/users accordingly.

Does anyone have this fresh postgres installation inventory that I'm looking for or know where to find it?

Any other ideas?

Please forgive any blatant ignorance.  I am rather new to postgres.
