In this chapter, we covered the steps to install PostgreSQL from the source: downloading, configuring, building and installing. We went through the directory structure of the source tree, the cluster initialization process, the resultant directories and files, as well as the process to install and remove extensions.

In the next chapter, we will cover PostgreSQL Server Architecture. We will cover the various background processes, their functions, memory structures and how they all work with each other to provide the many features available in PostgreSQL.
