I set up the bitcoin atom daemon on an Ubuntu server and I want to run it.

How can I do that?

  • Is simply passing the -daemon flag not working? – Raghav Sood Mar 25 '18 at 13:57
  • No it's not working am running Ubuntu 16.04 – Ys3 Mar 25 '18 at 14:20
  • Can you provide some more detail? What happens instead, is there an error in the debug log? – Raghav Sood Mar 25 '18 at 15:08

You may miss rpcport number in configuration file.

Run nano ~/.bitcoinatom/atom.conf

Add new line rpcport=7332 for mainet or rpcport=17332 for testnet

Kill the process and restart server

  • How to run it again? – Ys3 Mar 29 '18 at 10:19
  • And what's the other information of RPC and from where i get it? like the ip address , the rpc user, rpc password ... etc – Ys3 Mar 29 '18 at 10:20
  • Sometimes stop command may not work after configuration change. Then you have to kill the process using pkill -9 -f [process name] command. Here process name is daemon server name. – Prayag k Mar 29 '18 at 12:18
  • Their wiki doesn't provide much informations. You can utilize the bitcoin core wiki as reference. bitcoin.org/en/developer-reference#rpc-quick-reference . For rpc password and username, use any arbitrary string. – Prayag k Mar 29 '18 at 12:23
  • Does the configuration of btc atom goes same for BTC? Like same RPC port ? – Ys3 Mar 29 '18 at 14:17
