Or are both blockchains kept in the same file, I wonder?

I have run both blockchains from an ubuntu install and only see a single wallet.dat file in my /.bitcoin folder.

The testnet data is in a subdirectory, cleverly disguised under the name "testnet". Wink

I know this because Tyler knows this.

Interesting!

Sooo, if my "hidden" bitcoin folder on ubuntu is found in /home/ubuntu/.bitcoin/

Then my testnet folder would be found where exactly?

Found it!

Testnet folder is located inside the .bitcoin folder (and is not hidden).
