Board » General » psycopg.OperationalError: FATAL: database "communitydraft" does not exist

I downloaded the CommunityDraft release and extracted it on Fedora 10. I then followed the instructions for setting up settings.py and ran syncdb but I get this:

./manage.py syncdb
Traceback (most recent call last):

I thought that syncdb created the database for you?

If I manually create the database and run syncdb, nothing is setup.

the database tables are created automatically, but you have to manually set up the database...

if you create a database and run syncdb it should correctly set up all tables and create initial data (like a super user)
Hey, we have Signatures !!! Great, isn't it ? ;)
