Linux

 1. [Install DreamFactory](Install-on-Linux). (The below steps assume a DreamFactory install in `~/dsp/` with its PHP installed in `~/dsp/php/`.)
 2. Check `~/dsp/php/etc/php.ini` to ensure the values `extension=pgsql.so` and `extension=pdo_pgsql.so` are present and uncommented. (In the Bitnami installer they already are.)
 3. Check `~/dsp/php/lib/php/extensions/` to ensure `pgsql.so` and `pdo_pgsql.so` are present. (These are included in the Bitnami package.)
 4. If you made any changes/additions in steps ii and iii, restart your Apache server.
 5. Login to your DreamFactory Admin Console and create a new [service](Services). Enter the following, then click Save at the bottom of the page.
   * Type: Remote SQL DB
   * Username and Password: valid credentials to your PostgreSQL DB
   * SQL Vendor: PostgreSQL
   * Host: hostname or IP of your PostgreSQL server (localhost if appropriate)
   * Database Name: name of the PostgreSQL DB
   * Connection String: if using a port other than the default (5432), add `;port=####` (where #### is the actual port number) to the end of your connection string
 6. Click over to the "API Docs" tab, expand your new service, and perform a simple GET request to verify connectivity.
