Exporting from Windows wallet and importing on Linux
« on: August 25, 2014, 12:55:56 PM »

Hi,

I am in the process trying to setup a delegate rig. I already registered an account and a delegate sub account on the windows client, and would like to import the accounts into the client running on my Ubuntu VPS.

Is there an easy way to do this? I can't seem to figure it out.. it is not quite as straight forward as importing a Bitcoin private key. :(

Thanks for help

wallet_dump_private_key <delegatename or account key>

wallet_import_private_key <private_key_from_above>

make sure to enable block production with
wallet_delegate_enable_block_production .. or so

Beautiful. Thank you so much, I was making it much harder than it needed to be.

I had a feeling I was doing something wrong..

Thanks again buddy :)

just also make a backup of the wallet using the buil-tin backup function ... you will get a backupJSON file .. make sure to also write down your passphrase as the private keys in that file are encrypted!
... in contrast to the raw private keys you used above!

Ok, will do. I was trying to import the encrypted private key via the json file earlier. I guess I probably could of done it that way too, but I was messing up somewhere in the process. The way you provided is much easier. I will definitely get everything backed up, already got the passphrase stored away safely!

Thanks for your help, I'll send u a little something.. I don't have much (like $20 total lol) but I'll send some of it.  :D

Can anyone tell me if I am showing up on the alternate delegate list?? I am trying to search for my name on there but it isn't popping up. For some reason it says I have no votes, but I voted for myself so I should have some, right? xD
