So I am busy tryng to install Diaspora on our VPS server. But it seems to require a diaspora password at tis stage, as it gives me three attempts?

Creating a user for DB
If you like a separate DB user for your diaspora* installation, log in to your PostgreSQL server as the main user ‘postgres’. One way to do this is:
sudo -u postgres psql
You need a user with the privilege to create databases.
CREATE USER diaspora WITH CREATEDB PASSWORD ‘’;
