On Elementary OS Loki 0.4.1 I’ve downloaded and installed bitcoind as per the official guide from bitcoin.org .
However, I in my case I don’t have enough space on my internal SSD to store the whole blockchain, so I want to download it and maintain it on an external hooked up HDD.
When I run the
bitcoind -daemon -datadir=path_to_external_hdd_folder the Bitcoin server starts up successfully and starts downloading the blockchain to that specified folder (In the logs I can see the height is growing and so is the size of the selected datadir which I passed in as an argument)
My problem is – when I try to run commands by running
bitcoin-cli getblockchaininfo for example, I get the error:
error: Could not locate RPC credentials. No authentication cookie could be found, and no rpcpassword is set in the configuration file (/home/martin/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf)
What’s weird is that when I move the
.cookie file from my external drive to
/home/martin/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf the commands start working.
This is a temporary solution though, I wouldn’t like to move that file everytime I startup the bitcoin server.
Do I maybe need to pass in an extra argument to
I’ve tried passing
-rpccookiefile=path_to_cookie_file_on_External_hdd to it but that didn’t work.
