7. Create a profileΒΆ

Please consult the documentation of AiiDA on how to create an AiiDA profile. If you followed our instructions when creating the database, please use the following information when requested by verdi setup:

Database engine: postgresql_psycopg2
PostgreSQL host: localhost
PostgreSQL port: 5432
AiiDA Database name: aiidadb
AiiDA Database user: aiida
AiiDA Database password: <password>

In the rest of this getting started guide we will assume the user registered with the email address mymail@address.com, which is later used as an identifier (check e.g. next step when we test the computer connection).

After setting up your profile, now AiiDA daemon can be started by

$ verdi daemon start
Starting the daemon... RUNNING
