Install the PostgreSQL server and database schema

Even if you have multiple users, you only need to install the PostgreSQL server on one machine.

Choose one of the schema packages and install with apt-get

  • postbooks-schema-quickstart (Recommended)

  • postbooks-schema-empty

    • requires a lot of manual data entry to get started, but useful if you already have a lot of things like chart of accounts in a CSV file and you want to customize everything
  • postbooks-schema-demo

    • contains sample data, use this to explore the features of PostBooks before making any commitment to use it with your own business data

Follow the instructions in the /usr/share/doc/postbooks-schema-quickstart/README.Debian file to load the schema into your database server.

Install the PostBooks GUI

` apt-get install postbooks `

Run it for the first time

See this page on the upstream web site to start configuring it.
