Not syncing on 0.8.0
« on: April 08, 2015, 05:04:23 AM »

My client has not synced the last couple of versions, and I've not been able to trade for many weeks as a result. I'm now running with 0.8.0 and plenty of RAM. I tried starting from scratch, and syncing is stuck at 113 days ago. Below is what get_info says...anything obvious?

nothing obvious ..
you could remove everthing from %appdata%\Roaming\BitShares "/Users/xxxxxxxx/Library/Application Support/BitShares",  (except 'wallets') and start over from skretch
maybe try chainservers for faster syncing: http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/BitShares/Chain-Server

I found this finally worked a charm, thanks Xeroc.

FYI, Although replaying the entire block-chain only took me a few hours in total, which was pretty good I thought, I noticed that it really stalled at the blocks around 19 days out, and then only moved sporadically and slowly from there. Just for noting.

The chainserver might have had some issues .. you can always stop the client, switch to another chainserver and continue the syncing process

I'm afraid I don't know what that means nor how one might do it.  ???
Happy its operating smoothly again now though.
