dash-cli, you will need to add a RPC password to your
dash.conf file. Both programs will read from the same file if both run on the same system as the same user, so any long random password will work:
You should also make the
dash.conf file only readable to its owner. On Linux, Mac OSX, and other Unix-like systems, this can be accomplished by running the following command in the Dash Core application directory:
chmod 0600 dash.conf
For development, it's safer and cheaper to use Dash's test network (testnettestnet - A global testing environment in which developers can obtain and spend duffs that have no real-world value on a network that is very similar to the Dash mainnet.), regression test moderegression test mode - A local testing environment in which developers can almost instantly generate blocks on demand for testing events, and can create private duffs with no real-world value. (regtest), or a developer network (devnetdevnet - A development environment in which developers can obtain and spend duffs that have no real-world value on a network that is very similar to the Dash mainnet. Multiple independent devnets can coexist without interference. Devnets can be either public or private.) described below.
testnet=1 # RPC Settings rpcuser=user rpcpassword=pass rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 #---- listen=1 server=1 # Index Settings txindex=1 addressindex=1 timestampindex=1 spentindex=1 [test] rpcport=19998
Added in Dash Core 0.16
Since Dash Core 0.16 it is possible for a single configuration file to set different options for different networks. This is done by using sections or by prefixing the option with the network as shown below:
Valid Section Names
Please note that the only valid section names are
# Enable RPC server for all networks server=1 [main] # Set custom mainnet ports port=9989 rpcport=9988 # Set custom mainnet RPC auth rpcuser=mainnetuser rpcpassword=mainnetpass [test] # Set custom testnet RPC auth rpcuser=testnetuser rpcpassword=testnetpass # Enabling indexing txindex=1 addressindex=1 timestampindex=1 spentindex=1 [regtest] mempoolsize=20 [devnet] port=21999 rpcport=21998
With this configuration file, dashd, dash-qt, or dash-cli can be run with the
-conf=<configuration file> along with the
-devnet=<devnet name> parameter to select the correct settings.
The following options will only apply to mainnet unless they are in a section (e.g.,
The options to choose a network (
testnet=) must be specified outside of sections.
