Mac Osx Brew Install Versions of Psql

To install and manage multiple Postgres versions on mac using brew, you can top tinto this repo:

brew tap petere/postgresql

Then, you can brew install <formula> as needed. The formulae installed are "keg-only", meaning that they are not linked to /user/bin, thus not getting a postgresql command in your terminal. You have to access it with a full path to the keg, /usr/local/opt/postgresql-9.4/bin/.

You can use the postgresql-common to manage multiple versions.

If you get an error saying that postgres role does not exist:

** (Mix) The database for HelloPhoenix.Repo couldn't be created, reason given: psql: FATAL: role "postgres" does not exist

/Applications/ -s postgres
