Great!

Here's how you install with the LATEST version of WordPress!

1) Go ahead and follow the readme and install PG4WP 1.3.1 on top of WordPress 3.4.2
2) The WordPress installation (from wp-admin) once you're connected will show updates available. Go ahead and tell it to update to the latest version
3) Once updated, you now have PG4WP running with the latest version of WordPress!

I've built two sites over the last couple days and have tested them to death. Not a single issue... enjoy!

Great way to avoid MySQL
By , for WP 3.5.1

Our entire infrastructure relies on PostgreSQL, from our Rails apps to our internal portals and everything in-between. We did not want to have to install another DB engine just to run WordPress; however, we knew we wanted to run WordPress because it is hands-down the best blogging platform out there.

Enter PG4WP. We have been using this since the 3.3 days. It had a few issues with 3.4.2 but they seem to be resolved as of 3.5.1 (Sometimes, it would error out with the generic "Can't select database" error).

This is an amazing plug-in that really does enable us, as heavy Postgres users, to use our favourite blogging engine WordPress without having to resort to the ugly MySQL.
