So the trouble I’m having is that I recently encrypted my wallet, but now whenever I try to enter my passphrase the wallet crashes. I can’t stake because the wallet is locked, but I can’t unlock the wallet.
I did happen to backup the wallet right before encrypting it.
Im on a Mac OSx Yosemite with 8gig RAM
Can a wallet be unencrypted?
What software are you using QT or ReddWallet?
If you backed up the wallet before encrypting it, nothing to worry about. Just close Reddcoin-Qt all the way and back up (yes, again) your encrypted wallet.dat just in case. Name it
Then copy your non-encrypted version over to the
~/Library/Application\ Support/Reddcoin/ folder.
And what should I name the backup file when I put it into the Reddcoin folder? Sorry for the noob question.
I tried what you suggested, naming the backup file wallet.dat after I copied it into the Reddcoin folder, reopened the wallet but its still encrypted.
Always make sure the original
wallet.dat retains the same name when replacing a version that you want to replace.
You may be able to also restore your wallet if you are running Time Machine.
