Dear pgsql-admin members:
 I am new to PostgresSql and run into some problems after I installed Posgressql 8.0 and PostgresSql  manager 3 Lite. Your advises will be appreciated:)
I. can't make connection to database
II. can't run a script which will created a database.

I. can't make connection to database

1. create db by using postgres manager Lite's create db wizard

db name new_db / host : lost host/port: 5432/login: postgres
when I tried to connect to this db I got FATAL error, ¡°database new_db doesn¡¯t exist."

2. Then I registered new host on port 5433, tried to connect. I got follwing error, ¡°error connection to server, is the server running on host, and allow TCP/IP connection on port 5433?¡± 

I checked pgadmin menu If this message appears, there are two possible reasons for this: 
a)either the server isn't running at all. Simply start it. 

b)The other non-trivial cause for this message is that the server isn't configured to accept TCP/IP requests on the address shown. 

Modification done: modified postgressql.conf set listen_addresses='*'
Do I need to set port = 5432, then add port 5433 as well? I still got same error message

II. can't run a script which will created a database.

1. run script in EMS postgres manager Lite
run command create database booktown;
¡¤ Error: "ERROR: source database "template1" is being accessed by other users" 

2. Run script in pgadmin 
Create Database "booktown";
\connect booktown postgres
ERROR: syntax error at or near "\" at character 146

Please give me some advise, I am kind of struck here. I need information on how to create and connect to a database

Where I can find error log message in web site which can help me trouble shoot the error message i got.
