Hello Melvin,

PostgreSQL is not included in the ms4w package. You have to install the
PostgreSQL database.

You can get an installer at:

Then you can follow the instructions to create the database and fill it
with the Mapbender tables:

Notice: add -U postgres to the commands that you find in the Mapbender
Wiki (it means send the command as user postgres)

Best regards Astrid
