It all started when I tried to make a couple of payments via bitcoin. The transactions just would not confirm. After doing some reading I saw that " zapwallettxes " would supposedly dump the transactions that would not confirm, so I could resend the payments. So I ran the routine. That was over 24 hours ago, and it's still running. The only way I can tell it's still running is (a) I have a blinking cursor on the DOS screen, and (b) when I try to run my wallet it says it's currently busy. Has anyone has any experience with zapwallettxes ? How long does it take to run?

  • What command did you actually run? – Anonymous Jul 10 '15 at 1:33
  • I ran -zapwallettxes – mikeMI Jul 10 '15 at 1:43
  • The full command, like bitcoind -zapwallettxes? – Anonymous Jul 10 '15 at 2:01
  • Bitcoin , yes I ran bitcoind -zapwallettxes . Is that OK or should there be something else? Also how long should that take to run? – mikeMI Jul 10 '15 at 3:40
  • The daemon will keep running in the background when you do that, in another session run bitcoin-cli stop to safely shut it down. You should be alright on your next launch. – Anonymous Jul 10 '15 at 12:28
