Is simply passing the -daemon flag not working? – Raghav Sood – 2018-03-25T13:57:38.507

No it's not working am running Ubuntu 16.04 – Ys3 – 2018-03-25T14:20:18.357

Can you provide some more detail? What happens instead, is there an error in the debug log? – Raghav Sood – 2018-03-25T15:08:02.357

You may miss rpcport number in configuration file.

Run nano ~/.bitcoinatom/atom.conf

Add new line rpcport=7332 for mainet or rpcport=17332 for testnet

Kill the process and restart server

How to run it again? – Ys3 – 2018-03-29T10:19:16.593

And what's the other information of RPC and from where i get it? like the ip address , the rpc user, rpc password ... etc – Ys3 – 2018-03-29T10:20:52.607

Sometimes stop command may not work after configuration change. Then you have to kill the process using pkill -9 -f [process name] command. Here process name is daemon server name. – Prayag k – 2018-03-29T12:18:33.963

Their wiki doesn't provide much informations. You can utilize the bitcoin core wiki as reference. https://bitcoin.org/en/developer-reference#rpc-quick-reference . For rpc password and username, use any arbitrary string.

Does the configuration of btc atom goes same for BTC? Like same RPC port ? – Ys3 – 2018-03-29T14:17:13.533

I checked the server and i found bitcoin.conf for bitcoin daemon which previous dev did . these are the lines in that file server=1 rpcuser=btcuserpass rpcpassword=btcpassworhuzehfsk rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 rpcallowip=192.250.230.216 port=40443 server=1 deamon=1 txindex=1 prune=550 walletnotify=/usr/local/sbin/rabbitmqadmin publish routing_key=peatio.deposit.coin payload='{txid:%s, channel_key:satoshi}' – Ys3 – 2018-03-29T14:19:06.830

On other side the board is asking for URL+Port , RPC user and RPC password . so does it mean the information which i need is for URL and port will be like http://192.250.230.216:40443 Or something else because the ip address which is motioned on the config file is not the same ip address of the server which is running the bitcoin daemon

rpcallowip is to accept incoming rpc connections from outside the localhost. This is what u really wants? – Prayag k – 2018-03-29T16:20:46.360

yes i want to connect this daemon with a board on another server via rpc – Ys3 – 2018-03-29T22:51:50.537
