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?

  • 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.

  • 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.
