I've just joined this morning and I wonder if anyone could help? I'd like
some opinions / war stories / suggestions/ recommendations whatever on
We have a PostgreSQL 7.2.1 server on Linux RHL 9 Enterprise / Intel port.
I am quite new to Postgres (my day job is an Oracle DBA) but I am
experienced in handling critical upgrades etc. on other platforms.
Feedback from the Forum, please, on:
* I want an up-to-date upgrade version, not too new and unstable.
Which one? 7.4.x? Wait for 7.5? I don't want to do this too often so I would
like to space major upgrade intervals by at least 12 months if possible.
* Any really pressing reasons to move off 7.2.x ? Nasty bugs not
patches until later versions?
* 3rd party software Incompatibility issues?
* Reasons of performance / functionality?
I would be most grateful to receive feedback from anyone out there. Very
much looking forward to your replies
