createdb: database creation failed: ERROR: source database “template1” is being accessed by other users

When attempting to create a new database on a PostgreSQL server running walmgr, which is part of SkyTools by Skype Developers, for real time failover I received an error. Initially I was a bit baffled by the error however I remembered after racking my brain for a little bit that you must stop walmgr’s syncdaemon when adding a new database. Below are more details about the error as well as how to stop walmgr’s syncdaemon and then create the new database.
