CS 586 students will need an account to log in on one of the various Unix servers cecs.pdx.edu or cs.pdx.edu. If you don't already have an account, go here and click on Accounts for instructions. You will have to go to one of the CAT front desks in person to activate your account and get your password.
Note: You do not need a CECS account to use the PhpPgAdmin interface.
You can access an installation of PostgreSQL via a command line or GUI interface. Both are explained on http://www.cat.pdx.edu/web/database-services.html . On that page you can also learn how to get your own Postgres database on the CECS server. In order to access the shared copies of the databases that we will all use, there are a few changes to those directions.
% psql –h dbclass.cs.pdx.edu –U introdb_readonly introdb_spy
and use the password introdb .
