first of all I'm totally unexperienced with eGroupWare.

I installed eGroupWare and ran threw the setup,

after Checking the eGroupWare Installation (all marked green)

I came in the setup menu where I get the message: 

Your Database is not working!
Make sure that your database is created and the account permissions are set.
Instructions for creating the database in PostgreSQL:
Start the postmaster
[user(at)server user]# postmaster -i -D /home/[username]/[dataDir]
Create the empty database -
[user(at)server user]# createdb test

So I tried to create a database, but I always end up with;

Database error: ADOdb::Connect(dbname=template1 host=localhost port=5432
user=root password='root', , $Password, ) failed.
pgsql Error: -24 (-24)

Function: db::query / db::create_database

Database error: ADOdb::Connect(dbname=test host=localhost port=5432
user=dimitri password='dimitri', , $Password, ) failed.
pgsql Error: -24 (-24)

Function: db::create_database

What did I do wrong?

And how do I solve it?

I'm using Ubuntu 6.06

 thx a lot
