Arguments and commands#
All command-line options (except for
-conf) may be
specified in a configuration file, and all configuration file options
may also be specified on the command line. Command-line options override
values set in the configuration file. The configuration file is a list
setting=value pairs, one per line, with optional comments
starting with the
The configuration file is not automatically created; you can create it
using your favorite plain-text editor. By default, dash-qt (or dashd)
will look for a file named
dash.conf in the dash data directory, but
both the data directory and the configuration file path may be changed
using the -datadir and -conf command-line arguments.
Typical path to configuration file
(2000-XP) C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\DashCore\dash.conf
Note: if running Dash in testnet mode, the sub-folder
be appended to the data directory automatically.
Command line arguments#
Detailed information for all command line arguments can be found at the following links to the Dash Core developer documentation site:
Wallet-related RPCs require using the
-rpcwallet option when more than
one wallet file is loaded. This is to ensure the RPC command is executed
using the correct wallet. See the Core developer documentation
for additional information.
Detailed documentation for all available RPC commands is accessible via
the Dash Core developer documentation RPC page.
For full documentation of arguments, results and examples, type
help ( "command" ) to view full details at the console. You can enter
commands either from Tools > Console in the QT wallet, or using
dash-cli for headless wallets and dashd.
