Is it possible for a postgresql server to run a script stored on the
server, and not on a client?
More specifically, I have a Linux server (running postgresql 8.1 beta2
and the CVS HEAD of postgis) and a Windows client.
From the windows client I would like to be able to create a database,
install POSTGIS, and then create various tables/objects and load data.
I run into problems when trying to install postgis from the windows
client because obviously "psql -d [yourdatabase] -f lwpostgis.sql"
doesn't work because lwpostgis.sql is on the server (and even if it was
one the client it specifies $libdir/liblwgeom.dll instead of
Is it possible to do this, or is it disallowed for security reasons?
