New to Knownhost's DirectAdmin, where do I start?

I just purchased a unmanaged VPS with DirectAdmin. I cannot figure out where, or how to get started.

I cannot seem to get connected by DirectAdmin via http://IPaddress:2222, neither via https. I went through the DirectAdmin files, logs but I do not see where the password was set. I went though the DirectAdmin wbsite and they suggest that I run the setup script. When I run /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/ it compains that "DirectAdmin already exists."

My question is: I have brand new unmanaged DirectadminVPS server, what are my next steps?


PS I have been a RedHat user for years, I'm not affraid of the command line.
