When I use the official installed bitcoind 0.18.1 everything works fine. I can use the bitcoin-cli with any comands and don't get any errors. After that when I compiled 0.18.1 myself I can't use any bitcoin-cli comands and I get:
error: Could not connect to the server 127.0.0.1:8332 Make sure the bitcoind server is running and that you are connecting to the correct RPC port.
I use bitcoin-cli without any options, just a:
bitcoin-cli.exe getbalance or
Here is my simple bitcoin.conf which I use with the both versions:
server=1 rpcuser=username rpcpassword=password rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 rpcport=8332 datadir=F:\BitcoinData
I compile it with MinGW-w64-i686-posix-sjlj on Win7 target platform and with boost 1.57, libdb 4.8.30, openssl 1.0.1, libevent 2.0.22 as a dependent libs. I tried to compile 0.16.1 verion with the same stack but error is a similar:
error : couldn't connect to server : unknown (code -1) (make sure server is running and you are connecting to the correct RPC port)
What is wrong with compiled version? I can't realise what I missed. The compilation went without any errors. May be I missed some ./configure options?
