Fatal error: Uncaught RuntimeException: Request have return error: Method not found; Request: {"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"getblockcount","params":null,"id":1}; in jsonRPCClient.php:166 I don't know what to do. I started monero-wallet-rpc on the port and configured the example.php with port, localhost, username and password. First I was running with no-rpc-auth and it gave me same error, then I deleted that argument and launched and told me unauthorized, then I edited the example.php and same error is up. I also launched monerod in screen.

getblockcount is a daemon RPC, but you mention monero-wallet-rpc mostly. It is likely you are trying to call this RPC on the wallet, not on the daemon, and the wallet rightfully errors out.

  • This is the right answer. It's not an authorization problem, the getblockcount method just doesn't exist on the wallet RPC, only on the daemon RPC Dec 22, 2018 at 8:46

Try params:{} maybe.

This one works for me: curl -X POST -d '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":"0","method":"getblockcount","params":{}}' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' { "id": "0", "jsonrpc": "2.0", "result": { "count": 1097471, "status": "OK" }

  • I tried if params = null, then params = {} but didn't work. Request have return error: Method not found; Request: {"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"getblockcount","params":"{}","id":1} May 20, 2018 at 18:23
  • Are you sure you're conneting to the right URL (/json_rpc), the right server/port ?

Have you try "id": "0" instead of "id": "1" From the deamon RPC dev guide (up to date):

curl -X POST -d '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":"0","method":"get_block_count"}' -H 'Content-Type: application/json'  

  "id": "0",  
  "jsonrpc": "2.0",  
  "result": {  
    "count": 993163,  
    "status": "OK"  

I ran it successfully when i did the update. So either the id field or the server you try to connect to is your problem.
Are you using both --confirm-external-bind and --rpc-bind-ip on your monderod?
