Currently using PostgreSql 8.1 on a Windows XP precompiled release.




I am trying to create a data base with the following command going into






I always get the following error message:

                     "source database "template1 is being accessed by
other users"


There are no other users of this database since I am creating the GIS
database from scratch.


Based on comments I found on the net when others encountered the same
error message, I closed pgAdmin III to make sure it is not causing the


The next step in debugging I restarted pgAdmin III and tried the same
command there and got the same message.


pgAdmin III shows "template1" to be the initial database.

can use template1.




Issue 2


Also, when I tried to add a comment while creaating the database using
the following string:

                        " COMMENT ON DATABASE \"World\" IS 'World GIS

Is there a way to add a comment programmatically?




Issue 3

2. If I issue the command < select * from pg_database > in pgAdmin query
I see all of the current databases but no description strings.


3. If I issue the command < select * from pg_description > in pgAdmin
query I see all of the descriptions that I added from pgAdmin but the
objoid is not the same as the oid that shows when I issued the < select
* from pg_database > command. So I can not select the correct


Is there a way to go from any pg_database ID to a corresponding
pg_description ID to retrieve the correct description?
