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

gmake
cd contrib/cube
gmake 
sudo gmake install
pg_config
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

Install pgadmin

Run pgadmin check can connect to server then create user musicbrainz

I then followed [[1]http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/Database_Installation] but had to make some changes for NGS release as follows

Edit admin/sql/CreateIndexes.sql removing the page indexes and musicbrainz_collate indexes
