UPDATE --July-2018 Original instruction was installing postgresql-server-9.2. Atlassian has dropped support for v9.2 for newer versions. The post updated to install Postgresql-server v9.6 instead. If you have followed original post, and now want to update your database server to the latest, you can follow this post: How to upgrade Postgresql server to v9.6
Update 2018-03-06: I created a script that will do all the steps described on this page and the second part on this page in one place in much easier way. You can download it from github.
Up until now I always have used Mysql server for Confluence instances. PostgreSQL is Atlassian preferred database for Confluence and their other products. So I will go through installation steps for this configuration. I already have a fresh minimal Centos 7 installation.

After you completed steps in this post, you can continue to make your connections secure and encrypted by following the steps on this page. http://comtronic.com.au/how-to-enable-ssl-on-confluence-centos-7/Continue reading →
