Send SMS messages from PostgreSQL User

In this chapter you can learn how to send and receive messages using a PostgreSQL database with the Ozeki NG - SMS Gateway software. You will be provided with the connection string for the PostgreSQL database, instructions on the ODBC driver installation, with a link to a PostgreSQL database driver download page, and the create table script.

Ozeki NG - SMS Gateway allows you to send and receive SMS messages using a database server with the help of SQL queries. The software supports, among others, the PostgreSQL database.

For SMS messaging with a PostgreSQL database you need to install and appropriately configure a database user in the Ozeki NG - SMS Gateway program. Also, you need a PostgreSQL database server, in which you have to create an ozekimessageout and an ozekimessagein table for outgoing and incoming messages.

You can install and configure a PostgreSQL user on the graphical user interface of the software. The installation and configuration of a PostgreSQL user is similar to that of any other database user.

To find out how to install and configure a database user, check out the Database User page.

As the PostgreSQL database requires Open DataBase Connectivity (ODBC), select Odbc in the Connection string type dropdown menu (Figure 1).

Replace the default database connection string with the one for the PostgreSQL database in the Connection string template (Figure 1):

DRIVER={PostgreSQL};
SERVER=YourServerIP;port=5432;DATABASE=YourDatabaseName;UID=YourUsername;PWD=YourPassword

Modify the variables in the connection string according to your needs.

ODBC Driver Installation

As mentioned above, for using a PostgreSQL database you need Open DataBase Connectivity between your database server and Ozeki NG - SMS Gateway.

For this connectivity, you need to set up an ODBC driver. The PostgreSQL driver is called psqlODBC.

Installation of the psqlODBC driver

Download the psqlODBC database driver from the Internet. You can use the following link:

http://pgfoundry.org/projects/psqlodbc/

Install the downloaded psqlODBC database driver by launching the downloaded exe file. The installation is similar to that of any Windows application. To move from one dialog box to the next, just click the Next and the OK button during the setup.

You can create the ozeki message tables in Postgre SQL using the following script.

Postgre SQL create table script:

CREATE TABLE ozekimessagein
(
id serial,
sender varchar(30),
receiver varchar(30),
msg varchar(160),
senttime varchar(100),
receivedtime varchar(100),
operator varchar(100),
msgtype varchar(160),
reference varchar(100)
);

CREATE TABLE ozekimessageout
(
id serial,
sender varchar(30),
receiver varchar(30),
msg varchar(160),
senttime varchar(100),
receivedtime varchar(100),
reference varchar(100),
status varchar(20),
operator varchar(100),
errormsg varchar(250),
msgtype varchar(160)
);

If you want to work with larger messages, you can increase the size of the msg field, or you may also change it's data type.

It is strongly recommended to maintain an index in the database for the 'id' field of the outgoing SMS table to support SQL updates. Postgre SQL creates index fields by default.
