I am looking to learn PostgreSQL.
I have a current working version of ArcGIS 10.5 with Python version 2.7. I have heard of people having installed another version of Python and having trouble with ESRI Python working after that.
I want to install PostgreSQL (BigSQL installer). This installer includes a version of Python.
Will installing PostgreSQL cause Python in ArcGIS to stop working?
I am trying to understand what Postgresql installer BigSQl does with my current installed ArcGIS python version. I am hoping that PostgreSQL and ArcGIS python programs run independent of each other--then there is no issue. If there are issues, I'd like to know BEFORE I install PostgreSQL. There is documentation that ArcGIS program not "playing nice" with other Python versions
Installing ArcGIS 10 with Python(x,y)
In Researching, I have discovered that Postgresql Bigsql installer in windows version does change the Python executable in the Pythonpath environment. The source of my info can be found Here. Does the installer “overwrite” ArcGIS 10.5 Pythonpath OR does the Bigsql installer “add” to the Pythonpath and thus both co-exist without issues?
