My issue is I cannot get RPC working with Bitcoin Core. I do not know what I'm doing wrong! When I first installed Bitcoin Core it did not come with a bitcoin.conf file so I created one with the following details:
server=1 rpcuser=root rpcpassword=password rpcconnect=127.0.0.1 rpcport=8332
That's all I have in there. And yes my Bitcoin Core client is in sync with the bitcoin network.
I've also checked my router and it is UPNP enabled and I literally see the port in my router's configuration open. The port is: 8333
And it is the only port open. Do not know if I need 8332 open. Please shed some light on this for me. What I am trying to accomplish is to get PHP to interact with bitcoind such as generate a new bitcoin address.
