-E, -encoding encoding Specifies the character encoding scheme to be used with this database.

dbname Specifies the name of the database to be created. The name must be unique among all Postgres databases in this installation. The default is to create a database with the same name as the current system user.

description This optionally specifies a comment to be associated with the newly created database.

The options -h, -p, -U, -W, and -e are passed on literally to psql.


CREATE DATABASE The database was successfully created. createdb: Database creation failed. (Says it all.)

createdb: Comment creation failed. (Database was created.) The comment/description for the database could not be created. the database itself will have been created already. You can use the SQL command COMMENT ON DATABASE to create the comment later on.

If there is an error condition, the backend error message will be displayed. See CREATE DATABASE and psql for possibilities.


createdb creates a new Postgres database. The user who executes this command becomes the database owner.

createdb is a shell script wrapper around the SQL command CREATE DATABASE via the Postgres interactive terminal psql. Thus, there is nothing special about creating databases via this or other methods. This means that the psql must be found by the script and that a database server is running at the targeted host. Also, any default settings and environment variables available to psql and the libpq front-end library do apply.
