install confluence with Postgres RDS


I am trying to install an empty instance of confluence and connect it to a postgresRDS. this is the binary I used.


I also created a postgres RDS (10.13-R1) in AWS. The RDS name is "confluence"

By trying to run the confluence setup page, I keep getting the following.
"org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: FATAL: database "confluence" does not exist"

here is my db URL. what did I do wrong? am I suppose to create a db called confluence in this RDS?


I also tried to use this, and got the following error


java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc:postgresql://
