     title: Creating and Managing Databases
     ---
     
    -A HAWQ system is a single instance of HAWQ. There can be several separate HAWQ systems
installed, but usually just one is selected by environment variable settings. See your HAWQ
administrator for details.
    -
    -There can be multiple databases in a HAWQ system. This is different from some database
management systems \(such as Oracle\) where the database instance *is* the database. Although
you can create many databases in a HAWQ system, client programs can connect to and access
only one database at a time — you cannot cross-query between databases.
    +Your HAWQ deployment may have multiple databases. This is different from some database
management systems \(such as Oracle\) where the database instance *is* the database. Although
you can create many databases in a HAWQ system, client programs can connect to and access
only one database at a time — you cannot cross-query between databases.
     
     ## <a id="topic3"></a>About Template Databases 
     
    -Each new database you create is based on a *template*. HAWQ provides a default database,
*template1*. Use *template1* to connect to HAWQ for the first time. HAWQ uses *template1*
to create databases unless you specify another template. Do not create any objects in *template1*
unless you want those objects to be in every database you create.
    +Each new database you create is based on a *template*. HAWQ provides a default database,
`template1`. HAWQ uses `template1` to create databases unless you specify another template.
Do not create any objects in `template1` unless you want those objects to be in every database
you create.
     
    -HAWQ uses two other database templates, *template0* and *postgres*, internally. Do not
drop or modify *template0* or *postgres*. You can use *template0* to create a completely clean
database containing only the standard objects predefined by HAWQ at initialization, especially
if you modified *template1*.

     ## <a id="topic4"></a>Creating a Database 
     
    -The `CREATE DATABASE` command creates a new database. For example:
    +You must have appropriate privileges or be a HAWQ superuser to create a database. If
you do not have the correct privileges, you cannot create a database. The HAWQ administrator
must either grant you the necessary privileges or create a database for you.
    +
    +The [CREATE DATABASE](../reference/sql/CREATE-DATABASE.html) command creates a new database.
For example:
     
     ``` sql
    -=> CREATE DATABASE new_dbname;
    +=# CREATE DATABASE <new_dbname>;
     ```
     
    -To create a database, you must have privileges to create a database or be a HAWQ superuser.
If you do not have the correct privileges, you cannot create a database. The HAWQ administrator
must either give you the necessary privileges or to create a database for you.
    -
    -You can also use the client program `createdb` to create a database. For example, running
the following command in a command line terminal connects to HAWQ using the provided host
name and port and creates a database named *mydatabase*:
    +You can also use the client program `createdb` to create a database. For example, running
the following command connects to HAWQ on the host named `hmaster` at port `5432` and creates
a database named `mydatabase`:
     
     ``` shell
    -$ createdb -h masterhost -p 5432 mydatabase
    +$ createdb -h hmaster -p 5432 mydatabase
     ```
     
    -The host name and port must match the host name and port of the installed HAWQ system.
    +The host name and port must match the host name and port of the HAWQ master node.
     
    -Some objects, such as roles, are shared by all the databases in a HAWQ system. Other
objects, such as tables that you create, are known only in the database in which you create
them.

     ### <a id="topic5"></a>Cloning a Database 
     
    -By default, a new database is created by cloning the standard system database template,
*template1*. Any database can be used as a template when creating a new database, thereby
providing the capability to 'clone' or copy an existing database and all objects and data
within that database. For example:
    +By default, a new database is created by cloning the standard system database template,
`template1`. You may identify an alternate template to use for database creation. As mentioned
in the section above, you can specify `template0` as the template:
