I have compiled bitcoin core from the github repo using the regular instructions.
It compiled and it runs successfully

bitcoind --version
Bitcoin Core version v22.99.0-2f7b5c3039c7

However, it seems i have no wallet RPC methods

bitcoin-cli -regtest help | grep wallet

returns nothing.

How do i create a wallet?

  • What did your configure command look like?

  • @AndrewChow just configure no extra args. Im doing this in a container, i can post the entire dockerfile, if it would be useful (using ubuntu 20.1)

    Do you have sqllite or bdb installed to build the wallet? Dec 10, 2021 at 3:27

1 Answer 1


The problem was that i had no db lib as @meshcollider noted
after adding
apt-get -y install libsqlite3-dev (on ubuntu)
and recompiling the wallet methods are there
