Before installing lakeFS, you need to have a PostgreSQL database. In this guide we show you how to set it up on AWS RDS, but you can use a different database as long as it’s accessible by your lakeFS installation.
- Follow the official AWS documentation on how to create a PostgreSQL instance and connect to it.
You may use the default PostgreSQL engine, or Aurora PostgreSQL. Make sure you’re using PostgreSQL version >= 11.
Once your RDS is set up and the server is in
Availablestate, take note of the endpoint and port.
- Make sure your security group rules allow you to connect to the database instance.
