Which PostgreSQL version for poker tracker 4?

Postby IhateChoppedPots » Tue Nov 03, 2020 9:26 pm

I bought and installed pt4 but it didnt automatically install PostgreSQL so I have to do it manually. I installed PostgreSQL version 13 but im getting an error. Which version do I need to install?

ok so i found on this site that version 9.6 works. However the page was updated in 2019 and not sure if any newer version works with PT4. I installed 9.6 and it works.

Newer PostgreSQL versions such as v12 and v13 haven't been extensively tested with PokerTracker 4 and v9.6 is still our recommended version at this time.

PokerTracker 4 supports up to PostgreSQL v10 so we recommend using that or PostgreSQL v9.6.

That sounds good. How do I do the upgrade to postgres 10 that the easiest/safest?

Save and backup everything (and manually save user data folder), then just uninstall postgres 9.3 and pokertracker, then reinstall postgres 10 and pokertracker, then make a new DB and import all hands there? Replace a couple of files in the user data folder for having the custom stats and player notes available again?

All that would be required is the backing up of your database(s), uninstalling PostgreSQL v9.3, installing PostgreSQL v10 and then restoring your database(s) in PokerTracker 4. There is no need to uninstall/reinstall PokerTracker 4 or do anything with your user data folder and reimporting hands wouldn't be necessary:
