Zcash.conf terminal error

#1

I get this error:
If somebody can tell me why i should modify my conf.file

~/zcash$ Error: To use bitcoind, or the -server option to bitcoin-qt, you must set an rpcpassword in the configuration file:
/home/unik/.zcash/zcash.conf
It is recommended you use the following random password:
rpcuser=bitcoinrpc
rpcpassword=AkUWhPedHzHZGb5ntbCTvUDUQ4cZ5UUFEnT4kfeGK47
(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" admin@foo.com

I am experiencing the same issue... I've gone through everything several times. How did you proceed?

problem solved by not using obt file. haha I just edited an autocreate log document and renamed it. for some reason gnome doesn't want to poop new documents with a right click for me.

I see zcash server starting now...
