manitou-mgr --create-database [--conf=/path/to/configfile] [--quiet]
[--db-name=val] [--db-user=val] [--db-host=val] [--db-port=val]
[--db-super-user=val] [--db-super-password=val]

Database user that will own the newly created database (default: manitou).

Database port number to connect to (default: 5432).
Database superuser to connect to in order to create a new database (default: postgres)
Password for the database superuser (default: no password).
