how to upgrade?


hi all. i might be asking a stupid question here. but anyway how to upgrade my postgresql from 7.3.1 to 7.3.2?? coz the size of the file i downloaded is almost the same as ver. 7.3.1 (only a bit bigger for 7.3.2). issit a different set of installation file or i just need to tar it and it will automatically overwrites the previous version? please advice.
thanks in advance.

RE: how to upgrade?

What is the name of the file you downloaded? (I'm trying to find out if you downloaded the source code, or a binary version)

Hi totti24,

I do not believe the binary for postgres 7.3.2 is yet available.  Just un-tar the tarball and follow the instructions.  There are no changes in the database/tables structures so when you make install it will overwrite the postgres 7.3.1 install, and then your done.  As a causionary measure, I would have a backup.
