What exactly are you trying to do here?

Depending on what you really want to do here, you need to change your
connection string to fit what you want.

In order to connect to postgres, you must specify a database.  If you do not
want to connect to a database immediately, then you can use the default
database (which is usually "template1").  Otherwise, if you don't indicate a
database to which to connect, it will assume you are trying to connect to
the user's database, which by default is the same name as the user.  I'm
assuming that your web server is running under the "www-data" user account.

If you explain more in detail what you want to accomplish, we will be able
to help better.
