In this article, we will discuss how to create database in PostgreSQL using pysopg2 in Python.

CREATE DATABASE is one of the Data Definition Language ( DDL ) statements supported by the PostgreSQL Database Management System. It is used to create database in PostgreSQL. Database name should be always unique. If it already exists then it shows that the particular database already exists. 

Syntax: CREATE DATABASE database_name;

Example: Creating Database using Pyscopg2 

Python3

import psycopg2
 
# connection establishment
conn = psycopg2.connect(
   database="postgres",
    user='postgres',
    password='password',
    host='localhost',
    port= '5432'
)
 
conn.autocommit = True
 
# Creating a cursor object
cursor = conn.cursor()
 
# query to create a database
sql = ''' CREATE database products ''';
 
# executing above query
cursor.execute(sql)
print("Database has been created successfully !!");
 
# Closing the connection
conn.close()
