[postgis-users] PostGIS on remote server

What would I have to do in order to use PostGIS on a remote server that I
am connected to?

I am fairly new to PostGIS and have been setting it up for use (I have
PostgreSQL 9.6.18 and PostGIS 3.0). I have both local databases located on
my computer and databases on remote servers that I connect to. When I use
the CREATE commands available at https://postgis.net/install/, PostGIS sets
up fine on my local databases (I have PostGIS installed through the
StackBuilder with pgAdmin).

When I try to do the same on a server I am remotely connected to, I get the
following error:

"ERROR: could not open extension control file
"/usr/pgsql-9.6/share/extension/postgis.control": No such file or directory
SQL state: 58P01"

Does this mean I would have to have PostGIS somehow installed on the remote
server as well or is it possible to use it with the local installation that
I have?
