14.3. Getting The Source

The PostgreSQL 8.0.26 sources can be obtained by anonymous FTP from ftp://ftp.postgresql.org/pub/source/v8.0.26/postgresql-8.0.26.tar.gz. Use a mirror if possible. After you have obtained the file, unpack it:

gunzip postgresql-8.0.26.tar.gz
tar xf postgresql-8.0.26.tar

This will create a directory postgresql-8.0.26 under the current directory with the PostgreSQL sources. Change into that directory for the rest of the installation procedure.

Unzipping directly from the tarball is also possible on most tar distributions:

For gzip archives:
tar -zxf postgresql-8.0.0.tar.gz

For bzip2 archives:
tar -jxf postgresql-8.0.0.tar.bz2

And on FreeBSD - just plain

tar xf postgresql-8.0.0.ext

no matter what "ext" is (tar, tar.gz, tar.bz2, tgz, tbz...)
