The 'inituser' file should be consumed at the next startup of Zope, at
which point the credentials you used to create the file should work.  E.g.:

  $ cd /var/lib/zope  # the "instance home"
  $ echo 'admin:123' > inituser
  $ bin/zopectl stop
  $ bin/zopectl start
  .daemon process started, pid=12345
  $ file inituser
  inituser: ERROR: cannot open `inituser' (No such file or directory)

An equivalent option would be to use the 'adduser' command of zopectl, e.g.:

  $ bin/zopectl
  program: /var/lib/zope/bin/runzope
  program running; pid=12345
  zopectl> stop
  . daemon process stopped
  zopectl> adduser admin 123
  zopectl> start
  . daemon process started, pid=34567

In this version, you can skip the 'stop' and 'start' if you are running
Zope with ZEO enabled.
