"Database created has no index whatsoever".  What do you mean?  Indexes (I 
assume you mean mysql) for each table based on primary key?  postgresql 
creates them automatically.  I have added a few indexes on large tables to 
improve query performance.  What other indexes do you need?

"tables do not have primary keys" - Which tables?
