Backup&Restore Postgres DB

P: 1
Hi all,

I need to backup and restore a DB.
In this particular case the data in the database is not important (strange hum...) but only the schema to put new data...

I m thinking use the pg_dump:

pg_dump -c -C -s schema > file.out

With this i have in file.out the schema, correct?

So, to restore the db from scratch, for example to a new system, what should i do?
it automatically creates all users, rolls, permissions etc?How?

What is the best way of doing it?

Many thanks
