4. Further Information

Besides the documentation, that is, this book, there are other resources about PostgreSQL :


The PostgreSQL wiki contains the project's FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) list, TODO list, and detailed information about many more topics.

Web Site

The PostgreSQL web site carries details on the latest release and other information to make your work or play with PostgreSQL more productive.

Mailing Lists

The mailing lists are a good place to have your questions answered, to share experiences with other users, and to contact the developers. Consult the PostgreSQL web site for details.


PostgreSQL is an open-source project. As such, it depends on the user community for ongoing support. As you begin to use PostgreSQL , you will rely on others for help, either through the documentation or through the mailing lists. Consider contributing your knowledge back. Read the mailing lists and answer questions. If you learn something which is not in the documentation, write it up and contribute it. If you add features to the code, contribute them.
