Currently the bitmonero folder resides in the home folder, but is there a config file I can just put this in vs having to start monerod with the --data-dir parameter?

1 Answer 1


The default configuration filename is bitmonero.conf. You should create it in the default data directory for your appropriate operating system.

Just add:


On Unix/Linux/macos systems, the default directory is ~/.bitmonero

  • is there a template of default values I can adjust? Commented Sep 17, 2017 at 12:54
