I downloaded and setup the bitcoind and by using the command to check the progress of the download it shows like it gets to 25k~ and then starts over back from 0 and so it continues in a handless loop. Here it is a screenshot that show what im talking about http://prntscr.com/eoeuhe Thanks for helping :)

  • By the way, you can omit -rpcuser and -rpcpassword if it's in your bitcoin.conf. bitcoin-cli knows how to read bitcoin.conf for that.

  • Have you looked in the debug.log file? What version of bitcoind is this? Commented Mar 25, 2017 at 21:41
  • How much free memory does the system have? It may be running out of memory at flush time, and then needing to start over. Commented Mar 26, 2017 at 4:03
