How to create PostgreSQL databases

April 2, 2024 / How-to Guide

In this article, we will explain how to create PostgreSQL databases.

Follow the steps to create PostgreSQL databases:

  1. At the command line, type this command while logged in as the server’s root user:
    su – postgres
  2. Now, you can execute commands as the PostgreSQL superuser. To make a new database, type the following command, replacing “user” with the desired user’s name to own the database and “dbname” with the name you want for the new database:
    createdb -O user dbname

If you have permission to create databases, you can do it directly from your own account with this command, replacing “dbname” with the name you want for the new database:
createdb dbname

Once you have created the PostgreSQL database, you can manage the PostgreSQL database. This includes crucial tasks such as user management, backups and optimising database performance. This will help you ensure that your database runs smoothly and efficiently.
