The configuration file is definitely in $HOME/.bitcoin/. If you cannot see it, the most likely explanation is that you have not created it. Just use your favorite text editor to do so. As far as I can tell, bitcoind -daemon will run without bitcoin.conf being present and you will still get the message ‘Using config file /home/user/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf’ in debug.log even when no file exists.
I was having the same problem and just managed to fix it now. Since the file bitcoin.conf does not exist inside ~/.bitcoin, Just create one. Here’s what did: vi ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf Enter letter ‘a’ (to edit the file). Then type: rpcpassword=any_long_random_password Press the ESC key, and press ZZ to exit vi Apparently the password that bitcoind started with is (for one reason or the other) different from the one you are trying. (i also have a feeling that bitcoind misbehaves like that because no password was defined; since there was no bitcoin.conf) Now, even though you have changed the password, it will NOT be effective until bitcoind has been re-started. But since it won’t even accept the stop command (./bitcoin-cli stop) due to the authentication issue; You will need to kill the process, and restart bitcoind. It will work fine afterwards: pkill -9 -f bitcoind then ./bitcoind -daemon Hope this is helpful
Finally, you can configure your bitcoin.conf file correctly. I found this article and copied and pasted the following code:
# Expose the RPC/JSON API
rpcbind= YOUR VPS IP ADDRESS HERE
rpcallowip= YOUR IP ADDRESS HERE
It wasn’t working after this, and I didn’t know why. My issue was that I had mistyped the port in my code.
You can query the bitcoin blockchain now from your local machine by following this guide and configuring as you need.
Many marry early, choosing a woman too quickly. Or they indulge themselves in a life of plenty, thinking little of the days ahead and consuming much now, only to be smacked later.
Others pick social status. They broadcast their identity throughout their life, easily and readily to anyone who will hear, oppressed by the idea of what others think of them and where they rank.
Few choose chastity, a lifelong devotion to God. Still, the man of God is oppressed by his sin and lack of devotion, as his focus is to remain upward.
Many more will choose ideology, reading and listening to their leaders and high priests, eagerly consuming the words from their gods mouths. “Look how well I listen”, they cry out.
The silliest of them all is the rebel, who is defined only by his environment. He is a boy, immaturely rejecting any embraced aspects of society, and running the other way. He exists only by the presence of others, a character with no identity outside of his habitat.
How do I escape this life? Must I choose an oppressor?
When you think about the contrast between childhood and adulthood, the most apparent one is the explicit memory of pure joy and the carefree nature you embodied as a kid.
What were your goals as a kid? If you had them, you were probably a bit non-traditional, and considered to have a “head-start” on life. If you were more carefree and less-forward thinking, you had a lot of great moments.
Standard adulthood seems to be straightforward and grueling. Pick your career. This has a high amount of influence on your general perception and linked to your status. You then work to gradually and slowly increase it (status), adding in responsibilities like marriage, kids, and a house while you are moving forward.
Adulthood seems grueling, but it comes with leverage – you are taken seriously and if you are bold enough, you can do anything you want.
Most people just sit back and let life come at them. This is very easy to do, and almost understandable. Work is tough and stressful. But if you never work hard, both on and off the clock, leverage whatever advantages you have, then you’ll always be on loop.
On The Loop
Your time on the loop is relative to the amount of status you’ve gathered in your circles and responsibilities you’ve acquired. If you have a very busy and demanding job, you are almost always on the loop.
Off The Loop
When you are able to do the things you truly want to do, create and produce whatever you truly desire. You’re driven by creativity, not deadlines.
I am currently in the middle of building an E-commerce store with WordPress in my downtime/free time.
The first aspect I wanted to tackle was the design. I think most people think of design as a carefully crafted PSD, with a specific mobile design, and RGBA and beautifully selected fonts.
The problem with this approach is that is requires way too much time and money. I am not a designer. I am a developer primarily (and I do project management in addition to my job). So, we will have to work around this limitation.
Step 1: Determine colors
I went to coolors.co, and generated five colors. I might not need all five colors, and I can easily change them later, if I find that they don’t work.
Step 2: Determine Theme Design
This step was simple: Just google “E-commerce themes”.
I ended up finding this E-commerce theme from Shopify that I liked. I’ll borrow a lot of aspects from this design, including header and footer and simple approach to design. The color palette I generated earlier, I will use sparingly as highlights, using primarily the light green and light blue.
Step 3: Find a Logo
Because my website is called “Awesome Bamboo” for products made out of Bamboo, I will simply google “Icons for Bamboo”, “Bamboo logos”, “logos to use for bamboo”, until I found this one.
I liked this one the most. It was very simple and went with some of my colors. If I regenerate colors later, I’ll use this as a guide.
And that’s my guide to “Hacking Design” for a basic E-commerce project. Next up, I will talk about my tech stack, and show maybe the first page I built.
