I have a question about creating a database. 
I can create a database easily using pgAdminiii, but I
am trying to get it done using psql.

I get the message psql: FATAL: Password authentication
failed for user ....

I think I need to login as the administrator. I looked
at the psql to template1 command which is working. I
found the following command:
psql.exe  -h localhost -p 5432 template1 "postgres"

How can I login the psql interactive terminal as the
administrator. It works with the above command for

What am I missing here?
