Changed default MySQL password and cannot login now [closed]

After installing OCS, it says to change the default MySQL ocs password. I am using OCS 2.1.2 on Ubuntu. I did the following in Terminal:

  1. mysql -u ocs -p
  2. SET PASSWORD FOR ocs@'localhost' = PASSWORD('passwordhere');
  3. sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
  4. sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start

After I did this, I can no longer sign into my OCS website. It says "User not registered." I am not sure what to do from here. I tried to repeat the step by reverting back to the default password, but that didn't help. I am not very familiar with Linux so a very simple solution would be appreciated. Thank you!
