Install PostgreSQL on Ubuntu

The simplest way to install PostgreSQL is to type the following command.
sudo apt-get install postgresql
However, this command will install the old version 8.4
Sancho has been tested with PostgreSQL 9.1 and here are the instructions.
apt-get install python-software-properties
add-apt-repository ppa:pitti/postgresql
apt-get update
apt-get install postgresql-9.1 libpq-dev
apt-get install postgresql-contrib-9.1

sudo -u postgres psql template1
alter user postgres with encrypted password 'your_password';
And that's it, PostgreSQL should be online.
