1. IntroΒΆ

Elephant Shed is a web-based PostgreSQL management front-end that bundles several utilities and applications for use with PostgreSQL. It currently manages single-node Debian/Ubuntu PostgreSQL servers and appliances.

The main components are:

In addition several other tools are included for configuration management and setup.

The number of components bundled and tasks handled add some overhead compared to running just the database server. It is therefore only recommended for adequately sized systems.

This document describes the current version. Updated versions of this document will be shipped with the elephant-shed packages and can be found in /usr/share/doc/elephant-shed-portal (/usr/share/doc/elephant-shed*) and in the web portal under https://your-server/doc/.
