[postgis-users] PostGIS on Centos 7

Hi there

We have a managed server with PostGreSQL / PostGIS and Centos. We 
asked our ISP about moving to a new server and they said 
PostGIS  "would not work well with CentOS7, certainly not without a 
great deal of customisation and it's something we would not 
recommend. " (I am not convinced they know much about PostGIS  though...)

Does PostGIS  work well on Centos 7?
Is there a web page that says PostGIS  works well on Centos 7 - so I 
can send it to the ISP ?

Back in 2011 the same ISP installed PostgreSQL 9.0.2 with 
PostGIS  onto Centos 5 fairly easily. I don't know exactly why they 
are reluctant to install PostGIS  on Centos 7 - they have not given 
details. We would be happy to use the most up-to-date Postgresql and PostGIS.

(I'm reluctant to shift to another ISP because up to now, these guys 
have been excellent. I'd like to convince them that PostGIS is fine 
on Centos 7.)
