Yesterday I decided to fork a project, just for fun and to learn more about it. So, I forked a project, I generated my own genesis block, changed timestamps, nounce, keys, reset the min chain work. Everything was fine. Compiled it for Windows and Linux, it worked perfectly. I set up a wallet on a Vultr server, the other one in my own PC, mined a few blocks and then I went to bed.
The Vultr walllet kept running, but mine didn't, I closed it.
When I woke up and opened the wallet, it was trying to download blocks. getblocktemplate basically says it is downloading blocks, but there are no blocks to download. It says "8 hours behind".
I'm not sure if this is supposed to happend.
In my ignorance I'm going to assume it is normal: how do I fix it without having to delete everything and making a new chain?
If it's not normal: What did I do wrong?
