Set your MySQL Password for mythconverg database

I believe mythbackend will create the mythconverg database and mythtv user, but I'm not sure the password it'll create for that user. Come up with a password, change it (I like to use webmin to do simple database stuff -- if you do too, remember to install it using Synaptic), then save the password in your /usr/share/mythtv/mysql.txt file so mythbackend knows what to use for the password:

# /usr/share/mythtv/mysql.txt

Every once in a while I reinstall mythtv from scratch, but every time I forget how to change the password to the mythconverg database.

I never used webmin, so I must've done it through mysqladmin or some other command line tool.

Would you know the command for this? Thanks!
