Just trying to run some pretty simple commands on an SV node. Why am I getting this?

ey@BitcoinSV:~$ bitcoind -testnet
bitcoind: command not found

    Hi cryptskip, your edit changed your post into a different question and made Andrew's answer not make sense anymore, so I reverted it. It would be better if you'd ask your updated question as a new post. Jan 22 '19 at 20:17

That error means that the command bitcoind was not found on your computer's path. Make sure that you have installed the software correctly such that the bitcoind binary is on the path.


Bitcoin SV is a fork of bitcoin-core, so all the commands of bitcoin are almost the same as on Bitcoin SV

in here you can find all the RPC commands with much more details
