Instructions on how to setup the database using Postgres

parent ea359ce0
Setting up the database for Mahara
-----------------------------------
Mahara assumes that you have properly created the database and the user account
before you connect to the site.
Here's how to create a 'maharauser' account on Postgres:
$ sudo -u postgres createuser -P maharauser
Enter password for new role: ********
Enter it again: ********
Shall the new role be a superuser? (y/n) n
Shall the new role be allowed to create databases? (y/n) n
Shall the new role be allowed to create more new roles? (y/n) n
CREATE ROLE
and how to create a new 'maharadb' database:
$ sudo -u postgres createdb -O maharauser -E utf8 maharadb
CREATE DATABASE
NOTE: If you know what the MySQL equivalents are, please send them to
dev@mahara.org so that they will be included in the next release.
