Hey Jambu

The procedure remains the same.

Use the system console option and then move to the postgresql folder and
follow the mentioned steps.

Cheers

*TO initialize and set up postgres SQL before you use metasploit you have
to do the following:*

*1. initialize the postgres SQL*

#initdb -D ~/metasploitdb

*2. Start the postgres SQL*

# pg_ctl -D ~/metasploitdb start

*3. Now while the service is listening create the user and set a password
for it:*

#createuser -P msfuser

Enter password for new role:

Enter it again:

Shall the new role be a superuser? (y/n) n

Shall the new role be allowed to create databases? (y/n) n

Shall the new role be allowed to create more new roles? (y/n) n


*4. Now assign ownership for the DB *

# createdb --owner=msfuser metasploitdb

*WHILE SETTING UP THE METASPLOIT USE:*

PORT: 5432 (DEFAULT FOR POSTGRES SQL)
USERNAME: msfuser
PASSWORD: <WHATEVER YOU SET>
DB: metasploitdb
*
eg. db_connect msfuser:[whatever password you set]@
127.0.0.1:5432/metasploitdb*

yes, actually i think metasploit folks prefer postgres over mysql. to
configure postgres:
https://community.rapid7.com/docs/DOC-1268
what i found is there is no need to download the pro package. only svn
the msf3 directory and use mysql/postgres of your own system.
