Q1: If I accidentally delete the
pos_key file under
pos_config folder, what should I do?
A1: You shold not delele the file
pos_key. If you deleted it, you need to reconnect and withdraw the staking. You need to wait for 9 hours for the CFX to be unlocked and then re-register. We suggest you to skip the wait and using a new Chrome account to test.
Q2: The program has stuck for more than 20 minutes, what should I do?
A2：Restart your program.
Q3: What should I do if the transaction failed when approving the locking CFX transaction while succeeded when approving staking CFX transaction
A3: Go to Conflux portal->account profile->settings->advanced, look for the “custom nonce” and turn it on. When you turn on the “custom nounce”, each time when you need to approve for a transaction, a textbox will pop-up and ask you to enter a nounce. Enter nounce each time when you are asked.
Q4: Where can I report bugs during testing?
log folder to a Google Drive folder, and share the link with Cike in Discord.
Q5: What should I be cautious about when I restart the node?
