I need generate satoshi in my bitcoin how test and i need use the -tesnet or -regtest, and when I press the command in my shell: bitcoind -regtest -daemon return:

Bitcoin Core starting

bitcoin-cli -regtest setgenerate true 101 return:

error: Could not connect to the server 127.0.0.1:18444

Make sure the bitcoind server is running and that you are connecting to the correct RPC port.

the command that i use, is the bitcoin core example testing but i cant connect :/.

this is my file bitcoin.conf

##            Quick Primer on addnode vs connect            ##
##  Let's say for instance you use addnode=4.2.2.4          ##
##  addnode will connect you to and tell you about the      ##
##    nodes connected to 4.2.2.4.  In addition it will tell ##
##    the other nodes connected to it that you exist so     ##
##    they can connect to you.                              ##
##  connect will not do the above when you 'connect' to it. ##
##    It will *only* connect you to 4.2.2.4 and no one else.##
##                                                          ##
##  So if you're behind a firewall, or have other problems  ##
##  finding nodes, add some using 'addnode'.                ##
##                                                          ##
##  If you want to stay private, use 'connect' to only      ##
##  connect to "trusted" nodes.                             ##
##                                                          ##
##  If you run multiple nodes on a LAN, there's no need for ##
##  all of them to open lots of connections.  Instead       ##
##  'connect' them all to one node that is port forwarded   ##
##  and has lots of connections.                            ##

  • Are you sure that bitcoind is running? The starting message does not always mean it is actually running. It may be shutting down soon afterwards. Please check and post the debug.log file. It would also be useful to run without -daemon. – Andrew Chow Jan 23 at 6:15

The problem is I guess, your bitcoin.conf says your are running on mainnet because testnet and regtest option are set to 0, but your bitcoin-cli command specifies regtest.

To activate an option in the bitcoin.conf file set the value to one:

In your case

regtest=1

  • see jlopp.github.io/bitcoin-core-config-generator to genearte a proper bitcoin.conf file – norisgOG Jan 27 at 0:08
  • hello @norisOG if you show my bitcoin.conf i have the regtest in number 1 and not 0. in the section [regtest]. but thanks to send me the link to generate my conf, Im improve the app. – Aisakk Jan 27 at 22:28
  • From the bitcoin-core repo it says: If multiple values for the same option are found with the same precedence, the first one is generally chosen. Because at the beginning you have the the network option regtest=0 – norisgOG Jan 30 at 10:02
  • thnx @norisgOG today Im going teste, that you say me. – Aisakk Feb 2 at 14:43
  • Well, I had delete my options and create new options and connect, But, I when use bitcoin-cli -regtest setgenerate true 101 to generate satoshi the console send me method not found i use getinfo with -regtest and say the same text. How i can fix this error? – Aisakk Feb 5 at 0:04
