PostgreSQL: use template1 database on rake:db_(create|drop)

Reported by Pete Deffendol | April 22nd, 2008 @ 11:07 PM

Currently the rake:db_create and rake:db_drop tasks will connect to the PostgreSQL server with a nil database, which causes PostgreSQL to look for a database with the same name as the connecting user. This isn't really feasible as the database is not guaranteed to exist.

PostgreSQL always has a template1 database - let's connect to it when creating/dropping other databases.
