Requirements to Run Postgres

Information on supported platforms is another chapter. In general, most Unix-compatible platforms with modern libraries should be able to run Postgres.

You should have at least 8 MB of memory and at least 45 MB of disk space to hold the source, binaries, and user databases. After installation you may reduce this to about 3 Mbytes plus space for user databases.
