How to add downloaded blockchain (from bitcoin core node) to new "bitcore" node?

(Testing112) #1

K I created a new bitcore node. Cant figure out how to convert the old blocks to the bitcore node, says I need to
"reindex" . cant figure out how and there doesnt look to be a guide for noobs. so just going to re-download the blockchain.

Rip internet, although , I have unlimited so not that bothered.

You should set Bitcore to use the same folder that contains the old blocks, and set reindex by either passing it as an argument (–reindex) or by setting reindex=1 in the config file.
In the latter case, remember to remove it before the next start, otherwise it will reindex again
