Install and configure PostgreSQL on our Ubuntu instance

Now that our Ubuntu instance is running on AWS EC2, we will now SSH into our instance and configure PostgreSQL (Version 12.4).

In this chapter, I will give instructions and rationale on how to do the following:

  1. Install PostgreSQL

  2. Create roles for PostgreSQL

  3. Allow for remote connections

Be sure to SSH into your instance before following the instructions.
