install.php need a user and a database in postgresql to complete
sucessfuly.  When executing the command "createuser wifidog --pwprompt"
you are creating the user wifidog and was ask to give a password for that
You should put one for security concern and use it in the wifidog
"Database access configuration" page during the installation.

The database user password and the password for the second page of
install.php is not the same.
