I am getting the error below when I go start start up Zcash for the very first time. I did the short test and it passed, but I think my issue is more in my lack of linux knowledge. Any help would be appreciated.
root@michael-Satellite-S875:/home/michael/zcash# ./src/zcashd -daemon
Zcash server starting
root@michael-Satellite-S875:/home/michael/zcash# Error: To use bitcoind, or the -server option to bitcoin-qt, you must set an rpcpassword in the configuration file:
It is recommended you use the following random password:
(you do not need to remember this password)
The username and password MUST NOT be the same.
If the file does not exist, create it with owner-readable-only file permissions.
It is also recommended to set alertnotify so you are notified of problems;
for example: alertnotify=echo %s | mail -s "Bitcoin Alert" firstname.lastname@example.org
