Setting up Postgres for Musicbrainz on a Mac System

Install MacPorts

Now install gmake using MacPorts

port gmake

Download postgres8.3 source and unzip

Build and install Postgres and Cube extension required by Musicbrainz

cd contrib/cube
sudo gmake install
cd /usr/local/pgsql/share/contrib
psql -d musicbrainz -U musicbrainz -f cube.sql

Reboot, start Postgres Server (because if built from source wont be started automatically)

sudo - postgres/usr/local/pgsql/bin/pg_ctl -D /usr/local/pgsql/data -l logfile start

Run pgadmin check can connect to server Create user musicbrainz

I then followed [[1]] but had to make some changes for NGS release.
