1. Locate the target deployment

Log in to the Control Panel and locate your target deployment on the Home page or the My Applications page.

2. Navigate to the “Shell / SSH” page

Click the "Manage" button on the Home page or the My Applications page to go to the Shell / SSH page.

3. Change the setting parameters

Note: Before you actually make changes to setting parameters, please make sure you have a backup file of your database. This will give you peace of mind if mistakes are made during the change and your service is down.

Connect to the instance via SSH

Click the “Connect” icon on the Shell / SSH page to launch the command-line interface.

Check the setting parameters

Enter the command “cd postgresql/”, followed by the command “ls” to check the files under the directory. You can see the configuration files for PostgreSQL: pg_hba.conf, pg_ident.conf, postgresql.conf

Change the setting parameters

Take the configuration file “postgresql.conf” for example:

Input the command “vim postgresql.conf” to go to the editing interface.

Now press the “a” key on your keyboard so you can start changing configurations. After the editing, hit the “Esc” key, followed by entering the “:wq” to save the changes.

Make the changes effective

Click “Reboot” on the Shell / SSH page to make the changes effective. Once you start the reboot process, the status will be changed to “Startup”. It may take 1-2 minutes. When it’s finished, the status will be changed back to “Running”, and you can repeat the steps as said above to check the configuration file.
