[MonetDB-users] Changing default monetdb password

I started mserver5 by just executing ./mserver5. I am getting the following
error when I execute changePassword.

!TypeException:user.main[1]:'user.changePassword' undefined in: _1:any :=
user.changePassword(_2:str, _3:str)

Please let me know if I am missing something.

Thanks,
