EXTENSION(7) PostgreSQL 9.2.7 Documentation DROP EXTENSION(7) NAME
DROP_EXTENSION - remove an extension SYNOPSIS
DROP EXTENSION removes extensions from the database. Dropping an extension causes its component objects to be dropped as well. You must own the extension to use DROP EXTENSION. PARAMETERS
IF EXISTS Do not throw an error if the extension does not exist. A notice is issued in this case. name The name of an installed extension. CASCADE Automatically drop objects that depend on the extension. RESTRICT Refuse to drop the extension if any objects depend on it (other than its own member objects and other extensions listed in the same DROP command). This is the default. EXAMPLES
To remove the extension hstore from the current database: DROP EXTENSION hstore; This command will fail if any of hstore's objects are in use in the database, for example if any tables have columns of the hstore type. Add the CASCADE option to forcibly remove those dependent objects as well. COMPATIBILITY
DROP EXTENSION is a PostgreSQL extension. SEE ALSO

EXTENSION(7) PostgreSQL 9.2.7 Documentation CREATE EXTENSION(7) NAME
CREATE_EXTENSION - install an extension SYNOPSIS
CREATE EXTENSION [ IF NOT EXISTS ] extension_name [ WITH ] [ SCHEMA schema_name ] [ VERSION version ] [ FROM old_version ] DESCRIPTION
CREATE EXTENSION loads a new extension into the current database. There must not be an extension of the same name already loaded. Loading an extension essentially amounts to running the extension's script file. The script will typically create new SQL objects such as functions, data types, operators and index support methods. CREATE EXTENSION additionally records the identities of all the created objects, so that they can be dropped again if DROP EXTENSION is issued. Loading an extension requires the same privileges that would be required to create its component objects. For most extensions this means superuser or database owner privileges are needed. The user who runs CREATE EXTENSION becomes the owner of the extension for purposes of later privilege checks, as well as the owner of any objects created by the extension's script. PARAMETERS
IF NOT EXISTS Do not throw an error if an extension with the same name already exists. A notice is issued in this case. Note that there is no guarantee that the existing extension is anything like the one that would have been created from the currently-available script file. extension_name The name of the extension to be installed. PostgreSQL will create the extension using details from the file SHAREDIR/extension/extension_name.control. schema_name The name of the schema in which to install the extension's objects, given that the extension allows its contents to be relocated. The named schema must already exist. If not specified, and the extension's control file does not specify a schema either, the current default object creation schema is used. Remember that the extension itself is not considered to be within any schema: extensions have unqualified names that must be unique database-wide. But objects belonging to the extension can be within schemas. version The version of the extension to install. This can be written as either an identifier or a string literal. The default version is whatever is specified in the extension's control file. old_version FROM old_version must be specified when, and only when, you are attempting to install an extension that replaces an "old style" module that is just a collection of objects not packaged into an extension. This option causes CREATE EXTENSION to run an alternative installation script that absorbs the existing objects into the extension, instead of creating new objects. Be careful that SCHEMA specifies the schema containing these pre-existing objects. The value to use for old_version is determined by the extension's author, and might vary if there is more than one version of the old-style module that can be upgraded into an extension. For the standard additional modules supplied with pre-9.1 PostgreSQL, use unpackaged for old_version when updating a module to extension style. NOTES
Before you can use CREATE EXTENSION to load an extension into a database, the extension's supporting files must be installed. Information about installing the extensions supplied with PostgreSQL can be found in Additional Supplied Modules. The extensions currently available for loading can be identified from the pg_available_extensions or pg_available_extension_versions system views. For information about writing new extensions, see Section 35.15, "Packaging Related Objects into an Extension", in the documentation. EXAMPLES
Install the hstore extension into the current database: CREATE EXTENSION hstore; Update a pre-9.1 installation of hstore into extension style: CREATE EXTENSION hstore SCHEMA public FROM unpackaged; Be careful to specify the schema in which you installed the existing hstore objects. COMPATIBILITY
