Usefull Postgres command

Note for me. Usefull PostgreSQL commands.

switch to the postgres user on the linux machine

su postgres

create a postgres database

createdb myFirstDb

enter the database with psql

psql myFirstDb

show all databases


show all tables in “myFirstDb”


Delete your first DB.

drop database myFirstDb;

exit psql
