     6Several components are needed, which can either be built from source or installed from pre-built packages, as shown below. For a quick start, there are official Docker images for Postgres here [https://hub.docker.com/_/postgres/]

    8 Install prerequisite packages using:
     8Without the Docker image, start by first installing the Postgres package:
    99{{{
    10 sudo apt-get install build-essential postgresql-9.1 postgresql-server-dev-9.1 libxml2-dev libgdal-dev libproj-dev libjson0-dev xsltproc docbook-xsl docbook-mathml
     10sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.1 postgresql-server-dev-9.1
     11}}}

     13Then for either approach, install the prerequisite packages using:

     15sudo apt-get install build-essential libxml2-dev libgdal-dev libproj-dev libjson0-dev xsltproc docbook-xsl docbook-mathml

    1318=== Build GEOS 3.4.x ===
    14 PostGIS 2.1 is best used with GEOS >= 3.4 for several new features, however Debian wheezy only has GEOS 3.3.3 available in packages, so it needs to be built from source. If you don't need the new features, instead install the {{{libgeos-dev}}} package.
     19PostGIS 2.4 is best used with GEOS >= 3.7 for several new features, however Debian wheezy only has GEOS 3.5.1 available in packages, so if you want the version that enables all features, GEOS needs to be built from source. If you don't need the new features(e.g ST_FrechetDistance), you can instead install the available version of GEOS {{{sudo apt-get libgeos-dev}}}.

     21There are multiple ways to build GEOS from source, but this is the simplest (Note: currently version 3.7 is only available in the nightly build. When 3.7 is released, switch to that):
