On my vm hosted through google cloud platform, using bitnami launcher I am trying to initialize a database to hold several tables imported from dozens of csv files. I am using postgresql and postgis. In the shell, I can't even run just a simple createdb command to create a default database. It requests a password, obviously. And this password I can only think can be one of three things: my google account password (which doesn't work), the password given by the launchpad (doesn't work), and the password I used for the user when creating the server (which also doesn't work). Here is an image of my shell after running createdb. What I interesting me is that it requests password twice, after entering the first one, it gives no feedback and requests the second one, that then gives the error. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! I have changing my user password using passwd command but after changing it it doesn't change the result.
I apologize if this is an easily solved issue but I feel like I've tried what i have found on stack overflow and the bitnami FAQs and documentation. I just simply don't know what password it wants.
