I am new to bitcoin network but I have spent significant time with ethereum.
For getting started with bitcoin I referred running a full node and Developer documentation- Regtest Mode. After installing
bitcoind, I was asked to change the password in
bitcoin.conf. But I am unable to locate it in
pr.singh@GLTINTERN-W040:~/.bitcoin$ ls bitcoind.pid blocks chainstate database db.log debug.log regtest wallet.dat
And so whenever I run any command like
bitcoin-cli -regtest generate 101, I get error stating:
error: Could not locate RPC credentials. No authentication cookie could be found, and no rpcpassword is set in the configuration file (/home/pr.singh/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf)
Am I missing anything? Also if you guys can provide a good tutorial to start development and testing in
restest network, it will be quite helpful.
