How to connect the database server to Windows

  1. Click on the Windows start button and Navigate to PostgreSQL 13.
  2. From there, open the SQL shell and follow the steps demonstrated below to create a new database on Postgresql: Postgres

You can create the database with the name of your choice. In the above shell:

  • \l is used to list all the databases created. You can easily see your newly created database at the bottom (testdb).
  • \c connects you to your database "testbase".

And with that, your new database has been created!

Happy Learning! 😃
