I am attempting to access bitcoind's http-json-rpc api thru firefox. I enter the following URL
and it returns
There was an error parsing the JSON document. The document may not be well-formed. Document contents:
So the document contents are empty, but when I inspect element and look at the response, I get
Status-code: 404 Not Found Connection: Close Content-Type: "application/json" Server: "bitcoin-json-rpc/v0.8.2-815-g5f083af-beta"
So the server is replying, but doesn't recognize the request or something.
My bitcoin.conf file reads
rpcuser=user rpcpassword=password rpcport=8332
If I do
instead, it gives me a 500 Internal Server Error
Any idea what is missing?
