How to install on Debian GNU/Linux Stretch

You can use the following instruction to install PGroonga on Debian GNU/Linux Stretch.

Install apt-transport-https package:

% sudo apt update
% sudo apt install -y -V apt-transport-https

Add APT repository for Groonga:


deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/groonga-archive-keyring.gpg] stretch main
deb-src [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/groonga-archive-keyring.gpg] stretch main

If you want to use PostgreSQL 10 or later, you need to add the APT repository by PostgreSQL:

% echo "deb stretch-pgdg main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list
% wget --quiet -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Install postgresql-9.6-pgroonga, postgresql-10-pgroonga or postgresql-11-pgroonga package:

% sudo wget -O /usr/share/keyrings/groonga-archive-keyring.gpg
% sudo apt update
% sudo apt install -y -V postgresql-9.6-pgroonga
% sudo apt install -y -V postgresql-10-pgroonga
% sudo apt install -y -V postgresql-11-pgroonga

If you want to use MeCab based tokenizer, you also need to install groonga-tokenizer-mecab package:

% sudo apt-get install -y -V groonga-tokenizer-mecab

Create a database:

% sudo -u postgres -H psql --command 'CREATE DATABASE pgroonga_test'

(Normally, you should create a user for pgroonga_test database and use the user. See GRANT USAGE ON SCHEMA pgroonga for details.)

Connect to the created database and execute CREATE EXTENSION pgroonga:

% sudo -u postgres -H psql -d pgroonga_test --command 'CREATE EXTENSION pgroonga'
