No pg_conftool on Centos 7?

YitzikC asked:

I’m adapting scripts that configure PostgreSQL 9.6 and 10.x on Ubuntu 16.04 to also work on Centos 7.4. I’m missing the pg_conftool utility which allows me to identify and modify aspects of the PostgreSQL configuration in a clean, high-level fasion, and I get no results from yum whatprovides pg_conftool. What Yum package would I need to install to have it available?

My answer:


pg_conftool isn’t packaged by CentOS or EPEL. You could always check out the source yourself and use the included .spec file to build your own RPM.
