We don't use password auth on the XS. It is a hassle, and gains you no
extra security -- the user you want to allow is the apache user, so we
do exactly that.

So create a new DB owned by the apache user, and the apache user will
be able to connect to it and manage it w/o problems.

I do not recommend messing with psql users and passwords.
