We include PostgreSQL in the CanvasLMS stack so the application is configured with that database when installing it. In case you want to use a different database, you will need to modify the
installdir/apps/canvaslms/htdocs/config/database.yml file to set the proper credentials and you'll probably need to setup the application again.
I suggest you ask in the official forums of CanvasLMS to get more information about this process.
