For a particular need I need to restart with the chain from a specific previous block.

I thought about using the invalidateblock command, but it's a bitcoin-cli command and if I run it on bitcoind it replies with an error and doesn't execute it.

How can I invalidate a block on bitcoind, or how can I restart from a specific block on bitcoind?

  • What was the exact error message in full? May 2 at 8:04
  • command not recognized. On bitcoind it just isn't recognized May 2 at 8:16
  • There is no console in bitcoind, unlike in bitcoin-qt.
