Description:
I don't like the test database, yet, you create it, after every install and update. Could you please not do this?

How to repeat:
Install or update the server.

Suggested fix:
Don't create the test database.

Thank you for the bug report. Looks to me as a feature request to add an
option in the install process to install or not install the test database.

Which detaults to off?
Why can't you just let the user create that database?

The test suite that is delivered with the server requires the test database.

Yes, and?

99% of the users probably don't run that testsuite. Why should they have a test database created?
And can't the other 1% create the database when needed?
