Hi Everyone,


I’ve used the following script for my dump; pg_dump -h -p 5432
-U mohlomi -F p teleform  > "teleform_Backup.dump" – and it worked fine.

After my dump, I dropped the database teleform - My nightmare starts
when I try to restore and I get error massages that the database dropped
already exist etc…

I used the script psql -h -p 5432 -U mohlomi -d teleform <
"teleform_Backup.dump" for restoring the database.


Funny enough the above scripts works at a table level!!!


Any assistance will be welcomed.
