I was looking for installation procedure for silverstripe 2.4.5 on postgresql. i'v downloaded
PostgreSQL [v0.9.2]
and copied content of talbar into same directory as those dirs:
and changed directory name to „postgres”
Then i was trying to find out what does it mean:
"Run dev/build and you should be set"
but i do not know what "dev/build" is.
When i am tring to launch installation page and change database to Postgersql 8.3+ i have this message:
"PHP has the required extension, but SilverStripe is missing the module
The SilverStripe module, postgresql, is missing or incomplete. Please download it."
can someone guide me to finish this installation?

best regards

but i do not know what "dev/build" is.

I heavily recommend doing the first tutorials before getting into anything else with SilverStripe as you'll learn these common functions.

The folder name should also be postgresql rather than postgres.
