   2  CREATE THE PostgreSQL DATABASE
   3  ------------------------------
   4  
   5  Note that the database must be created with UTF-8 (Unicode) encoding.
   6  
   7  1. CREATE DATABASE USER
   8  
   9     This step is only necessary if you don't already have a user set up (e.g., by
  10     your host), or want to create a new user for use with Drupal only. The
  11     following command creates a new user named 'username' and asks for a password
  12     for that user:
  13  
  14       createuser --pwprompt --encrypted --no-createrole --no-createdb username
  15  
  16     If there are no errors, then the command was successful.
  17  
  18  2. CREATE DRUPAL DATABASE
  19  
  20     This step is only necessary if you don't already have a database set up
  21     (e.g., by your host) or want to create a new database for use with Drupal
  22     only. The following command creates a new database named 'databasename',
  23     which is owned by the previously created 'username':
  24  
  25       createdb --encoding=UTF8 --owner=username databasename
  26  
  27     If there are no errors, then the command was successful.
  28  
  29  3. CREATE SCHEMA OR SCHEMAS (Optional advanced step)
  30  
  31     Drupal will run across different schemas within your database if you so wish.
  32     By default, Drupal runs inside the 'public' schema but you can use $db_prefix
  33     inside settings.php to define a schema for Drupal to run inside of, or
  34     specify tables that are shared inside of a separate schema. Drupal will not
  35     create schemas for you. In fact, the user that Drupal runs as should not be
  36     allowed to do this. You'll need to execute the SQL below as a superuser,
  37     replace 'username' with the username that Drupal uses to connect to
  38     PostgreSQL, and replace 'schema_name' with a schema name you wish to use,
  39     such as 'shared':
  40  
  41       CREATE SCHEMA schema_name AUTHORIZATION username;
  42  
  43     Do this for as many schemas as you need. See default.settings.php for
  44     instructions on how to set which tables use which schemas.
