CREATE THE PostgreSQL DATABASE
4 5
------------------------------

6 7
Note that the database must be created with UTF-8 (Unicode) encoding.

8
1. CREATE DATABASE USER
9

10
   This step is only necessary if you don't already have a user set up (e.g.
11 12 13
   by your host) or you want to create new user for use with Drupal only. The
   following command creates a new user named "username" and asks for a
   password for that user:
14 15

     createuser --pwprompt --encrypted --no-adduser --no-createdb username
16

17 18 19
   If everything works correctly, you'll see a "CREATE USER" notice.

2. CREATE THE DRUPAL DATABASE
20

21
   This step is only necessary if you don't already have a database set up (e.g.
22 23 24
   by your host) or you want to create new database for use with Drupal only.
   The following command creates a new database named "databasename", which is
   owned by previously created "username":
25

26
     createdb --encoding=UNICODE --owner=username databasename
27

28
   If everything works correctly, you'll see a "CREATE DATABASE" notice.
