I installed bitcoind on an ubunto server. If I execute bitcoind getinfo, I get the following output:


So it seems like it synced until block 206286. Around twelfe hours ago it 206154, so the number increased with normal block discovery time I would say. Connections are at 38 so this should be fine.

But if I checked correctly the actual current block is 300 000 something.

Does someone know whats the status of the wallet or how can I check it/

  • Two things to try: 1. Stop bitcoind and restart it. 2. Look at the debug.log file. Aug 14, 2014 at 15:44
  • Quick question: did you install bitcoind using "apt-get install bitcoind" ?

  • restarting helped. But it got stuck over and over again. Starting it with just one thread made it more stable (bitcoind -par=1 &)
