I would suggest just doing the installation on the server.  If you install
things in /usr/local there should be little risk of screwing anything else
up since there isn't currently any postgres installed on the server.

Once you start fiddling with mediawiki you will need to be more careful of
course since the live wiki is our organizational lifeblood!
