specifying a username for a DB

specifying a username for a DB

specifying a username for a DB

I'm very new to postgreSQL and i need to know how to specify the username and passwd for a database that i've already created. any help is greatly appreciated!!


RE: specifying a username for a DB

this is for redhat 7.x
log in as root
go to the command promt(or console as you call it)
type service postgresql start
there should be a confirmation saying that service started
type su postgres
then type createuser somename
there will be a question saying
"should user be allowed to create/drop databases?"
type y
then create a database by typing
createdb dbname
then type
psql template1
then type grant all privileges on dbname to somename

that should be all
