I have a AWS instance running a Bitnami´s PostgreSQL-backed Django application and I need PostgresSQL running with uuid-ossp extension.
If I try to make the extension to work via PosgreSQL shell I get this:
djangostack=> CREATE EXTENSION IF NOT EXISTS “uuid-ossp”;
ERROR: extension “uuid-ossp” has no installation script nor update path for version “1.1”
(Giving PostgreSQL version)
djangostack=> SELECT version();
PostgreSQL 10.4 on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by gcc (GCC) 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-11), 64-bit
After some Google searching, I found out I could compile PostgreSQL with uuid-ossp.
Procedures found at:
However, I have never compiled something like this and I´m afraid to perform such procedures on a database which is working fine with a web application (Django).
My simple question is: is there a way to enable uuid-ossp on my running database server?
Thanks a lot.
