PostgreSQL Connection

Initial Steps

Prior to running CopyStorm for the first time, create a fresh PostgreSQL database.

Connection String

The only complicated configuration required in the CopyStorm Main tab is the PostgreSQL connection string. Clicking on the Connection String Builder button will open a form that will construct the connection string for you, given database information.

The general form of a PostgreSQL connection string is:

  • [//host[:port]][/database-name]


  • //localhost/CopystormBackupDatabase

By default, a PostgreSQL connection will use the public schema. This can be overridden by entering a schema name.
