When following the https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Complete_Virtual_Mail_Server I fail at the "Courier-IMAP to Database".

First I do not understand at whichpoint this "testuser" was created or affected to the system.
When I try to test it I get a: "Authentication FAILED: Operation not permitted"
When I try the command "SELECT * FROM mailbox;postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/" (seen the log message about checking this table for the user and returning nothing)
I notice that there is not user at all, the table is empty.

How do I create them?

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

If you followed the whole tutorial, you have postfixadmin configured and running. You can use it to create virtual users : https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Complete_Virtual_Mail_Server/Postfix_to_Database#Querying

The graphical interface allow me to add administrator (which I did), not any user.
The command also returned 0 row.

I may have messed up somewhere, I'll never do installation at late night again.
