I successfully started my daemon several months ago using v12 and I haven't used the Monero GUI Wallet since. I just upgraded to v13 and I still can't get it to start.

Following the instructions at this link, I can't find the .bitmonero folder to diagnose the issue.

When I run the monerod application, I see this:

How do I get this sorted out?

Thanks in advance.

    On your system it's -> /Users/myusername/.bitmonero/lmdb | Note that, by default, this directory is hidden. You can, on Mac OS X, typically use CMD + SHIFT + DOT to unhide directories. – dEBRUYNE Jan 10 at 9:32
  • Thanks. Found that and when opening .bitmonero I see several lines that seem concerning. Example: 2019-01-10 15:40:59.024 0x7fff769e3000 INFO logging contrib/epee/src/mlog.cpp:277 New log categories: *:WARNING,net:FATAL,net.http:FATAL,net.p2p:FATAL,net.cn:FATAL,global:INFO,verify:FATAL,stacktrace:INFO,logging:INFO,msgwriter:INFO Do I proceed with step [15] on these instructions? If so, what’s generally the path to the blockchain? – Kyle Penn Jan 10 at 15:45

    The --db-salvage flag is typically unsuccessful. I'd personally suggest to skip it and perform step 16. In case you do feel like trying it, on your system the path is /Users/myusername/.bitmonero , where myusername probably is your real name (you can check on your system). Let me know if you need any further assistance. – dEBRUYNE Jan 10 at 18:58
