This is a multi-part question.
I downloaded source code of bitcoin core from github and compiled it on my Windows 10. Then I got
bitcoin-qt among other commands. I first run
bitcoin-qt and choose a directory(
D:\bitcoin) for blockchain data storing. However because I need to use
bitcoin-cli tool and bitcoin-qt doesn't expose an RPC service by default, I close bitcoin-qt and start
But then I found that
bitcoind didn't download blockchain from where
bitcoin-qt stopped(by run
bitcoin-cli -getinfo). How can I make
bitcoind download that way? (I use
bitcoind -datadir=D:\bitcoin to do that, is it right?)
Another question is where should I put my configure file. In my home directory(
C:\Users\MyName) or just in the same data directory(
bitcoin-qt use the same configure file?
