PostgreSQL still is complex to configure, but only a very small amount needs to be done unless you're running a large site (in which case MySQL would need configuration too, if it coped at all).
The default config values for some things (shared memory size, notably) are laughably small: suitable for testing only. I don't know why they start out *so* small, but it's easy to change them.
