I tried configuring the bitcoin core test by editing the bitcoin.conf file with the required credentials.

Earlier, before the writing the test credentials it was a running full node. now the error is

config settings for rpcport only applied on the test network when in [test] section.

Since you are choosing to use network specific sections in your config file, Core requires you to have certain arguments in those sections, such as rpcport. So you need to move rpcport into a network specific section.


for every UTX token ( bitcoind and the beyond ) for mode test net ("testnet=1") default port will be used and you can't change it because by default .

Default Bitcoin network protocol listen port is 18333 (instead of 8333) Default RPC connection port is 18332 (instead of 8332)
