P2POOL WILL NOT CONNECT
When I run_p2pool.py —net feathercoin
I get the error -10 Bitcoin is downloading blocks…
Feathercoin debug log shows date stamp time of 2017-12-22 15:21
My laptop time at est shows 10:21
VPS LINODE running 16.04.0 LTS
Is your node fully synced ?
How do I determine that?
I stopped feathercoind on the server. Did tail -f .feathercon/debug.log and did grep for sync. Started feathercoind and got the output “LoadBlockIndexDB() : synchronized checkpoint …” . Does that mean it is synced?
No, that is a checkpoint related message.
do a ‘feathercoind getinfo’ and check the line starting with ‘blocks’.
At this moment it should show
"blocks" : 2015925,
You can compare it with the output from http:// explorer.feathercoin.com
If your blockcount is ± 1 of the output shown there your node is synchronized
Blocks : 467870. My wallet is synced on my laptop. What directory do I named to zip/tar to put on my server?
I figured it out I need to create a bootstrap file. Thanks for helping me think this through.
Solve By copying chainstate directory and blocks directory from a synced up computer to the server.
