How to install postgres10 tools on Amazon Linux AMI


I need to use pg_dump for postgres 10.4 on my EC2 instance. My AMI version is:

$ cat /etc/system-release
Amazon Linux AMI release 2018.03

I’ve tried to get it from this repo:, then install postgres tools by command sudo yum install postgres10 but it works only for Amazon Linux 2.

Do you have any idea how can I get Postgres10 for my instance?


I haven’t been able to find any existing packages for version 10, here is how I compiled the client tools myself on the 2018.03 AMI

After this you can run pg_dump from /usr/local/pgsql/bin/pg_dump or alternatively add /usr/local/pgsql/bin to your PATH to run pg_dump anywhere
