I have been playing around a bit with Bitcoin Core (version 23.0), more specifically connecting to different wallets in Bitcoin Core through RPC in Python. I have found this library and tried to connect to my wallet(s) using this code:

from bitcoinrpc.authproxy import AuthServiceProxy

conn = AuthServiceProxy("http://myusername:mypassword@")

But when running this i get this stacktrace:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/kebab/Desktop/pron/testing.py", line 24, in <module>
  File "/home/kebab/.local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/bitcoinrpc/authproxy.py", line 141, in __call__
    raise JSONRPCException(response['error'])
bitcoinrpc.authproxy.JSONRPCException: -18: Requested wallet does not exist or is not loaded

Though what I have noticed is that if i load the wallet using bitcoin-cli -testnet loadwallet testingwallet. Then i can run RPC commands but only get info from that wallet!

And I have created my wallet using: bitcoin-cli -testnet createwallet testingwallet

Any help on this would really be appreciated!
