Hi Ewan,
It's great to hear that you are playing around with CKAN.

Did you define a sqlalchemy connection string in the configuration
file (point 8.1 in the deployment protocol)?
It should look like this if you set up a Postgres database:
sqlalchemy.url = postgresql://<user>:<password>@localhost/<db_name>

Hope this helps,
