I forgot to upgrade (from CLI or GUI v0.11 to CLI or GUI v0.12) and, as a result, accidentally synced to the wrong (alternative) chain. How do I resolve this issue?
With the most recent version, this particular issue is, fortunately, trivially fixed as follows:
Exit the GUI by clicking on the
x(right top) and subsequently making sure to stop the daemon as well.
Upgrade to GUI v0.12.3.0 -> https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/925q5m/gui_v01230_with_direct_ledger_support_released/
Start the "new" GUI (v0.12.3.0) and let it start the daemon.
The GUI (v0.12.3.0) should now automatically resolve your issue. However, this may take quite some time. Therefore, I'd advise to let it run overnight.
Exit all Monero related processes by simply typing
Upgrade to CLI v0.12.3.0 -> https://github.com/monero-project/monero/releases/tag/v0.12.3.0
Start the "new" v0.12.3.0
The daemon (monerod - v0.12.3.0) should now automatically resolve your issue. However, this may take quite some time. Therefore, I'd advise to let it run overnight.
