Run the test suite

The configuration for running the tests is included in Makefile. Only running the tests against an existing installation is supported:

make -j$(nproc)
sudo make install
make installcheck


Invalid locale settings

initdb: invalid locale settings; check LANG and LC_* environment variables

The locale settings can be set (to en_US.UTF-8 in the example) as follows (source):

export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
locale-gen en_US.UTF-8
dpkg-reconfigure locales

The dpkg-reconfigure locales command will open a dialog under Debian for selecting the desired locale.

Invalid permissions

FATAL:  data directory "/clone_path/./regress/instance/data" has invalid permissions
DETAIL:  Permissions should be u=rwx (0700) or u=rwx,g=rx (0750).

When using Vagrant, directories created in synced folders don’t respect umask. The Apache AGE source code needs to be cloned to an unsynced directory for running the tests.
