Config: Clearing data



Here is a command that will delete your chain data, stored wallets, stored data and any miners you have set up:



rm -rf ~/.lotus ~/.lotusstorage



This command usually resolves any issues with running lotus but it is not always required for updates. We will share information about when resetting your chain data and miners is required for an update in the future.
