Hi,

I suspect I've been making much more work for myself than is necessary...
Everytime I find my masternode not workig anymore i tend to send all my coins to another wallet,
then send 1000 of them to another new wallet I create with a fresh 0 address...
then I go into the .config file & update with the new info.
It's kind of tedious...
I'm assuming there is an easier way to do this ?
Could someone let me know

(the reason I assume I need to do this is because as I understand it, a masternode can only be activated if address 0 has exactly 1000 coins in it, as a masternode operates it quickly receives payments & then that address can't be activated anymore... Is this correct?)

much appreciated,

thanks

Hey
whow, yes you definitely overdid it (and overworked yourself).
You just have to update, not reinstall !

here is a guide for setup + updating

Thanks for the info,
I thought my update was a tad complicated...
Does the update also work if a MN is down for some days ?
I've gotten errors in the past when trying to restart my MN which is what led me to do this the loooooong way...
