I'm reading through Mastering Bitcoin and trying to follow along the examples.
When I first initialized
bitcoind, I set
txindex=1 in my
bitcoin.conf file. In a later example I was unable to
getrawtransaction which failed with the error No such mempool transaction. I re-ran
bitcoind with the
-reindex flags, which took a few hours.
However I'm still unable to
getrawtransaction, which again fails with the same error.
Have anyone experienced the same issues? Perhaps there is something else that needs to be done for this to work in
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
