How do I connect to Postgresql database

How do I connect to Postgresql database

How do I connect to Postgresql database

Hello. I have never heard of a Postgresql database until today. I work with SQL Server but we have an app with this type of a backend on one of our servers now. I want to connect and read tables.

Does anyone know how to do that from sql server?

RE: How do I connect to Postgresql database

What do you mean by "from sql server"?



psql --help
you can start an sql-interface to access the database DBNAME, The second form should provide you with informations how to specify a special host, port, user and so on.

I never heard of calling a different vendor from one database - i.e. calling oracle, informix, mysql or something else from postgresql or vice versa.
