I am working with the testnet. I downloaded the bitcoin-core application on Linux and I am running the version Bitcoin Core version v0.12.1.0-g9779e1e (64-bit) I was able to download the bitcoin block, recently its no longer syncing with the bitcoin network. Its showing 3 days behind and 0 active connection to the bitcoin network. How can I fix the issue. I want to connect to the testnet. I tried to change the network settings in the application. Still its not working.

  • I think that may be the same issue as you are asking about in your other question.

  • @Murch May be there is some issue when I updated to the latest version (0.12.0). I deleted the block chain for version 0.12.0 and download the full block chain again for 0.12.1.

  • You probably wouldn't even have to have deleted the chain, just updating the version would probably have allowed your Bitcoin Core to reorganize. Anyway, did that solve your problem?
