Help! How to import wallet.dat to PPC client on a Mac?

Hey guys, I’m packing a bit because I’m not having any success importing my wallet.dat file. I’m on a Mac. I’ve tried just dropping the .dat file into my library folder but when I re-start the client my balance shows zero.

I should be fine because I have multiple copies of my .dat file, but not being able to import it successfully is troubling. I know this is a noob question, but if anyone can spare the time to talk me through it I’d very much appreciate it :slight_smile:

Cheers fellow PPCers!

Until the first MAC user drops by; Did you try to access your wallet on a Linux or Windows machine? Maybe set up a Virtual Machine running linux and try accessing your wallet there to see if it has an issue as well.

im not that familiar with mac but…


the correct location to put your wallet.dat is:

~/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/

now, you said you put in it in your “Library folder,”

were you referring to just ~/Library/, or did you actually mean the folder I just pointed out?

has the blockchain caught up? (guessing you might have downloaded the client anew, since your importing a wallet)

I sent Gibzeez instructions on how to do this. As soon as I’ve confirmed that the steps worked, I’ll post a tutorial on how to do it, along with one for importing a paper wallet on a Mac (unrelated, but something I have planned to do for a while).
