Instructions for solving Dopecoin wallet synchronization problems:
Adding Altcoin.Center's seed nodes to the wallet configuration file Dopecoin.conf and re-downloading the whole block chain should help you get synchronized.
The following instructions will walk you through creating the Dopecoin.conf configuration file and re-downloading the block chain.
Your coins are safe as long as you keep the wallet.dat
file backed up.
First make sure you are using the latest version of the Dopecoin wallet, downloaded from the links provided at http://dopecoin.com/resources.php
As of the time of posting this message, the latest wallet version available is 18.104.22.168.
First make sure your Dopecoin wallet is not running; if it is, shut it down.
Locate the Dopecoin data folder. The location depends on which operating system you're using:
- In Windows, the data folder is C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\DopecoinV3
. The AppData
folder is hidden, and in order to make it visible at Windows File Explorer, you must go to the View
tab and make sure the Hidden items
check box is checked.
- In Mac OS X, the data folder is /Users/YourUserName/Library/Application Support/DopecoinV3
. The Library
folder is hidden, and in order to make it visible at Finder, you must open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal
) and type the following command to the Terminal window, followed by enter: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
. You will then have to log out and back in to make Finder aware of the configuration change.
- In Linux, the Dopecoin data folder is ~yourusername/.DopecoinV3
Inside the Dopecoin data folder, you should see a handful of folders and files named database
Now create a folder named #BACKUP
inside the Dopecoin data folder, and move all other files and folders there except
the file wallet.dat
. Your Dopecoin data folder should now only contain the file wallet.dat
- the rest of the files should be in the #BACKUP
Start a text editor. In Windows you can use Notepad, in OS X TextEdit, and in Linux which ever text editor your distribution happens to provide.
Paste the following lines to the text editor:
Make sure to change the contents of the rpcpassword
parameter in the file into a string of random characters and numbers, i.e. TsR6Fcgkz4kFKiywTtUfat
Save the file by the name Dopecoin.conf
inside the Dopecoin data folder. Some text editors automatically add a .txt suffix to the file name, so after saving, make sure the file is really named Dopecoin.conf
and not Dopecoin.conf.txt
Finally, start your Dopecoin wallet again.
Your wallet should now connect to the Dopecoin network and start downloading the block chain from scratch.
