Script to create a copy of the Existing Database

 I am sharing a script to make a copy of the PostgreSQL database.

We can also create copies of the database using the pgAdmin tool, but I always preferred to use and create SQL script to perform the Database Administrator related activities.

In the development environment, I am following a practice that after every release of the sprint, I take backup of the database and as well as create the previous version of the database.

If any user wants to check existing functionality in the previous version, they can test with an old version of the database.

CREATE DATABASE newDB WITH TEMPLATE oldDB OWNER dbUser;

You can use below script to kill all running sessions:

SELECT pg_terminate_backend(pg_stat_activity.pid)
FROM pg_stat_activity
WHERE datname = 'datbase_name'
  AND pid <> pg_backend_pid();
