Hi All,

I'm confused about one aspect of backing up and moving
a database to a different server.
I've used pg_dump to dump the database and moved he
resulting file to the new server, where Postgresql is
istalled and configured (as far as I know).
But I know that before I run psql on the backup I have
to create the database with something like (createdb
-T template0 dbname).  How do I make that template0?
I assume I've got to make it from the old
server/existing database but am unclear about how.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
