    This isn't the ubuntu forums, or the metasploit forums, and if you can't figure out what it (the error message) means you should DEFINITELY not be using these tools. You are not a hacker, you are not cool and you are not a unique and beautiful snowflake.

    Now where is my Armalite AR-10 carbine gas-powered semi-automatic weapon...
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.

    hahahaahahaha

    u don't know what this error mean either

    any way i have found the solution, before start using the framework postgres requires edits to pg_hba.conf. Replace the default "ident" method with "trust"

    "coldzero" is that an alternative to "zero cool"?

    By the way I hate to disagree with you, but Gitsnik most definitely knows what that error means...

    Just out of curiosity did you try Google? Or any search for that matter? If that task is too difficult for you to perform prior to posting questions on this forum then let me do it for you:

    hxxp://lmgtfy.com/?q=metasploit+db_create+error

    see if that helps.

    hi freedom56

    if you only can think of coldzero as alternative to zero cool than i suggest watch less TV and read more books, try amazon it's not so bad

    Amazon.com: Cold Zero: Inside the FBI Hostage Rescue by Christopher Whitcomb

    and if you don't know, amazon is a book store and don't forget to learn Gitsnik about it

    thank you for your help.
    db_create tried to run something as the user "postgres" which either doesn't exist for which you provided the wrong password.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Easy buddy, I didn't mean that as insult. I was honestly curious if you got the name from the movie hackers.

    Now I was serious about the second half of my message. If you were to google your question, you would have recieved your answer already.

    @ archangel.amael

    I agree. It looses some of it's wow factor they way I did it.

    You are absolutely right, i have create a user name "postgres" before and yet the message show up,
    now i just use sqlite3 and it works fine.
