Subject: [NOVICE] create user with password
I logged in as postgres user and created a new user 'test' with a password.
create user test with password 'test';
But when I use the -U option to login with the new user 'test', it does not
ask for password and directly logs me in. If I use -u(without
capitalization), it asks for the username and password. I know that -u is
deprecated. Is there a way to get -U option to ask for the password before
logging in?? Or am I doing anything wrong here?
Check your pg_hba.conf in postgres directory.
Then check if you have 'trust' authentication for your local machine.
If so - then password is not required.
