Choose Correct Locale When Installing PostgreSQL on Windows

PostgreSQL (often simply Postgres) is an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS) available for many platforms including Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, MS Windows and Mac OS X. It is a free and open source software. It is ACID-compliant and fully transactional (including all DDL statements), implementing the majority of the SQL:2008 standard.

It should not be a problem to install a software like PostgreSQL. Just click “next” then you are done in minutes. But be careful, when the installation prompts a dialog that suggests you to select the locale, don’t make mistake. Here is the rule:

If you need Asian-language support, don’t left the locale as “default”. Simply choose any other locales, e.g. “C” in the combo list.

After the installation, supposing you need simplified Chinese support, change the configuration using command:

Windows: initdb -D data –locale=chinese-simplified_china.936 -E UTF-8
Unix/Linux: –locale=zh_CN.UTF-8
