Re: Setting up PostgreSQL on Debian...

How do you sign into pgAccess as the user with the creation
privileges? I didn't see a place to log on directly in pgAccess. Does
it use the permissions of whatever current user is logged into Debian?

If I have a user created for Debian, do I simply log in as postgres
and grant that user the create privileges?

Are the "Debian System" users and the PostgreSQL users the same? (For
example, If I create a new Linux user JoeBlow, is he already a
PostgreSQL user by default? Or would I have to create a "Postgresql"
user called JoeBlow also?)

Thanks for the help.
