This part of the documentation is for Icinga2. It is not for 'Icinga Web
2'. (I have no problems or failures when installing Icinga2. My rand was
about 'Icinga Web 2').

And if you use the db icingaweb2 in 'Icinga Web 2' the settings from the
document you mentioned are ...

This is one reason of the problems with this install documentation.
Have a look at the web. There are so much tutorials about the 'Icinga
Web 2' installation. Ok, mostly about the inst. with mySQL. It is not
clear at all. But if you know how Icinga2 and 'Icinga Web 2' works you
can get the needed info from the documentation (and the wizard, maybe).

Why I should use mySQL if there is a possibility to use PostgreSQL? If I
have to use mySQL for Icinga2 there should be no support for PostgreSQL.

EoD, because this is not helpful for others.
