CREATE THE PostgreSQL DATABASE
------------------------------
Note that the database must be created with UTF-8 (Unicode) encoding.
1. CREATE DATABASE USER
This step is only necessary if you don't already have a user set up (e.g.
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:
createuser --pwprompt --encrypted --no-adduser --no-createdb username
If everything works correctly, you'll see a "CREATE USER" notice.
2. CREATE THE DRUPAL DATABASE
This step is only necessary if you don't already have a database set up (e.g.
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":
createdb --encoding=UNICODE --owner=username databasename
If everything works correctly, you'll see a "CREATE DATABASE" notice.
