I moved my blockchain directory, including
bitcoin.conf, to an external drive
D:\Bitcoin. Bitcoin Core starts and runs normally using this path, however when I try to use the command line interface, even when I specify the new directory, I keep running into this error.
C:\Program Files\Bitcoin\daemon>bitcoin-cli -datadir=D:\Bitcoin -getinfo error: Could not locate RPC credentials. No authentication cookie could be found, and RPC password is not set. See -rpcpassword and -stdinrpcpass.
I know that the issue is that
bitcoin-cli is still looking in the default directory
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin because when I copy the auth
bitcoin.conf files to to old directory my commands work.
Wondering if the
-datadir flag is not working properly, if I made an error somewhere, or if there is another way to fix this? I have also tried using the
-conf=D:\Bitcoin\bitcoin.conf flag, however that does not fix either.
