geth personal.newAccount() shows password error

0 votes

Hi. I am facing some problem with ethereum. I am trying to create a new account. When I was searching for how to do this, I found this command:

geth personal.newAccount()

Now it was mentioned in that blog that I had to enter a password for this. I don't see where to enter the password. When I run this command, I am not asked for any password. I just get this error:

geth:129: command not found:password.

Please help me with this

You have to pass the password as an argument to the command you are running. The right syntax for this command is:

geth personal.newAccount('your_password')
