Wassabi modifications to bitcoin.conf makes port 8333 unreachable
I've been trying to track down why my bitcoin node can't be reached through port 8333, even though I have correct port forwarding rules set up on my router, and have allowed traffic on 8333 on my firewall. I checked bitcoin.conf, and noticed a section at the bottom modified by Wasabi: main.listen = 1 main.whitebind = 127.0.0.1:8333 main.rpcbind = 127.0.0.1 main.rpcallowip = 127.0.0.1 main.rpcport = 8332 I can't remember making these changes, but I suppose it's possible. Would these bitcoin.conf changes have been made Wasabi? There was a comment at the bottom of bitcoin.conf saying these changes were made through wassabee. At any rate, commenting them out restored normal bitcoin connectivity. My port can be seen as open at canyouseeme.org. What are the implications to Wasabi of leaving these lines commented out? Edit: spelling Edit 2: Clarification
Question about "paytxfee" config variable for bitcoin.conf
Hello, I noticed that there is an option that you can specify in the bitcoin-core application called "paytxfee" and the example is given as shown below:
#Pay a transaction fee every time you send bitcoins. #paytxfee=0.000x
I'm trying to find a clear explanation of what the "x" is referring to for this value. If i were to use the following commands to estimate a fee for confirmation within 10 transactions, i would get the following:
I could then use the command bitcoin-cli settxfee 0.00012265 and i would then have set my transaction fee to a value of 0.00012265 btc per kb as my fee -- my question is as follows: If i were to set a value of paytxfee=0.05x, what would this mean? Would that mean it would use 5% of the value already calculated with estimatesmartfee? Any clarification would be helpful :) Cheers!
I've set up an electrumx server and let it sync all blocks without setting txindex=1 in my bitcoin.conf file. Now, I'm obviously realizing my mistake as my wallet is missing transactions. if I were to go and set txindex=1 and reindex my full node, do I need to do anything on the electrumx side of things to also resync it's blocks?
Bitcoin Core painfully slow sync times + missing bitcoin.conf file?
So I've always had trouble syncing my bitcoin qt client, the times are painfully slow, (if it's even progressing at all) and I found out that the bitcoin.conf file is not created automatically and couldn't find out how to create one, there are so many flags to use. Any help?
Please help - why is my Bitcoin Conf file in the wrong directory?
I am running a Bitcoin Core GUI-based full node on Windows 10. The conf file is in my bitcoin data directory, instead of being in the appdata/roaming folder. But bitcoind and bitcoin-cli continue to look for the conf file in that appdata/roaming folder, which I guess is the reason the bitcoind server never appears to start. However, Bitcoin-qt (the GUI) appears to work fine and is also pointing to the conf file correctly. I checked by opening the conf file from the settings>options. How do I start bitcoind and check if it is running or not? If I run it on cmd, it appears to start downloading the whole blockchain again, which is unnecessary because I already have all of it.

To enable block pruning set prune=N on the command line or in bitcoin.conf, where N is the number of MiB to allot for raw block and undo data. A value of 0 disables pruning. The minimal value above 0 is 550. Your wallet is as secure with high values as it is with low ones. The bitcoin.conf file is not created by default, you will need to create it yourself. And also, I never had a c:\users\[username]\appdata\roaming\bitcoin folder as many online answers will suggest, this is because when I installed the bitcoin core program, I chose to put my data directory in a different place than default. The client configuration file must be placed in the home category, ~ / .bitcoind, the file is called bitcoin.conf. nano ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf. Enter: server=1 daemon=1 rpcuser=USERNAME rpcpassword=PASSWORD. Set the logs and password in place of USERNAME and PASSWORD. Now daemon is created to run in the background: sudo nano /etc/init/bitcoind ... By default, Bitcoin (or bitcoind) will look for a file named 'bitcoin.conf' in the bitcoin data directory, but both the data directory and the configuration file path may be changed using the -datadir and -conf command-line arguments. Operating System Default bitcoin datadir Typical path to configuration file bitcoin.conf. link Link to this Config File cloud download Download Config File. OK ...
