You only need those 4 steps once to start with then each new one will
just use step 4.
So you can either setup the database as you have done and use it as the
template for all the similar db's you want which means each new one will
only need step 4.
The other way is do 4 without using the TEMPLATE and then adjust 3 to
import the schema dump into the db just created (databasename2 in this case)
