automation script for postgresql
Could you please help how can I run automation script for postgresql after installing postgresql on Ubuntu? I need to automatize DB preparation before using it (create table, insert data, alter permissions).
I need to do it with the current rights of the user.
E.g., I have the only user admin_ubuntu. He has all rights to run psql.
All scripts are written but how can I run the script? usually, I need to edit configs ( I believe, /etc/postgresql/9.1/main/pg_hba.conf). But I do not want to do it.
So, what I need is just to run sql which will make a lot of things. How can I do it to run it? The problem is that I need to do a lot of things to allow to run sql when the OS is immaculate (empty).
It will be made every time when the Ubuntu will have been installed.

you should be able to run shell provisioning – following is example of what you can do:
# creating user sudo -u postgres psql -c "CREATE USER admin WITH PASSWORD 'password';" # creating new db if needed .. might need 2 (dev/test) createdb -U vagrant mydevdb # if you have more complex things you'll need to put that in a create_db.sql file and run the script as sudo -u postgres psql < create_db.sql
The create_db.sql file can contain any
CREATE TABLE statement
