Installing postgresql in a VPS server - cannot find 'createlang' command

I recently successfully installed from tar package the latest version of postgresql with phpPgAdmin in a VPS hosting server. It is working as I can see the test DB and can create new ones in phpPgAdmin. Now I need to run 'createlang' command to add a procedural language to the database to be able to install MySourceMatrix CMS. But the problem is whenever I run the 'createlang' script I get the shell responding as 'command not found'. Can anybody tell me what is happening?

I thought 'createlang' is inherent in the linux but it seems that this script needs to be installed first. My hosting provider does not provide support for postgresql - so I am of my own. The OS my hosting provider is using is RHEL (They would not say which version).

I would really appreciate any help to get around this problem.

As far as I know, createlang is a script that comes with PostgreSQL package and not linux distribution. You might (?) find this document useful:

Thanks. You are right. I needed to go to the /usr/local/pgsql/bin folder to issue the command. It worked.
