Step 6 of http://mozillians.readthedocs.org/en/latest/installation/installation-virtualenv.html#mysql-setup says : Install timezone info tables in mysql: (venv)$ mysql_tzinfo_to_sql /usr/share/zoneinfo/ | mysql -uroot -proot mysql There should be a space in between the options -u and -p. It is not a good idea (security wise) to input the root password in plain text to a command. Instead the password option should be left open with just the -p option so that mysql prompts for the password during the execution of the command.
It is indeed advisable to not enter password on the command line directly. Just mysql_tzinfo_to_sql /usr/share/zoneinfo/ | mysql -uroot -p mysql must prompt for a password and work. Note that -uroot and -u root does the same thing.
