Just looked through the error log file again and the apache log files and it
turns out that the problem occurs with psql command not found. Even though
when I do echo$ PATH is see that my path is set correctly and when I call
psql from terminal it responds, it seems not to identify the command when
called through the Database.pm file that creates the new database. Hope this
