bch-node.json file

{
  "network": "testnet",

    "bitcoind",

Installation Process:

npm install -g @owstack/bch-node
bchnode create -d <bitcoin-data-dir> mynode
cd mynode
bchnode install https://github.com/owstack/bch-explorer-api.git
bchnode start

It should run "http://localhost:3007/bch-explorer-api/" but it is not returning anything and it is getting error after 5 minutes in my linux terminal.

Can you please try replacing bch-node.json file with this:

{
  "network": "testnet",
  "port": 3007,
  "services": [
    "@owstack/bch-explorer-api",
    "bitcoind",
    "web"
  ],
  "servicesConfig": {
    "bitcoind": {
      "spawn": {
        "datadir": "./data",
        "exec": "/usr/local/lib/node_modules/@owstack/bch-node/bin/bitcoind"
      }
    },
    "explorer-api": {
       "rateLimiterOptions": {
         "whitelist": ["::ffff:127.0.0.1"]
       }
    },
    "fee": {
      "rpc": {
        "user": "bitcoin",
        "pass": "local321",
        "host": "127.0.0.1",
        "protocol": "http",
        "port": 18332
      }
    }
  }
}

Because Bitcore won't be able to connect to your node without knowing your RPC username and password.

  • Can you explain what changes have been made to fix the problem? It makes it easier for everyone to see what the problem was, and what the solution is. – Jestin Feb 9 '18 at 18:00
