Step 6. Install the PostgreSQL database server
DSpace can use the PostgreSQL or Oracle database server for the main database.
The following procedure installs the PostgreSQL database server and creates the "dspace" database and "dspace" database user with the very secret dspace database user password.
The PostgreSQL database server was chosen because it is open source software and this in keeping with the open access pathos.
