Installing HipChat trial, do I need to setup my own postgress server? Edited

I recently downloaded the trial version for the onsite hipchat server. I really just need to get in and test it out to see if this product will work for a project we are working on. 

I know that I need a postgres server for hiphat to work, my question is if there is a virtual machine with postgres already presetup for the trial that I can download?  Or do I need to go through and set it up from scratch just to test hipchat?

Hi, Robert!

Yes, you do need to set up Postgres; it is a hard requirement of Hipchat Data Center. Please refer to the following guidelines for details:

Let us know in case of any questions!

Hi Robert,

As an alternative you could also still install Hipchat Server, which does not require you to install a postgress server.

The download link for the Hipchat OVA can be found at

Best Regards,
