Errors while trying to setup a postfix mail server

I followed this article but i keep getting those erros

When i start postfix

Feb  8 13:57:11 localhost postfix/smtpd[4505]: fatal: open database /etc/aliases.db: No such file or directory
Feb  8 13:57:12 localhost postfix/master[3654]: warning: process /usr/lib/postfix/smtpd pid 4505 exit status 1
Feb  8 13:57:12 localhost postfix/master[3654]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling
Why this happens?
