Core Node Crashing


My node just barfed and can’t seem to restart it:

Hey @1HTz8vRS9szvMd2AwPvm,

Looks like you had an unclean shutdown sometime in the past. Can you try running blockstack-core stop and then blockstack-core restore before running blockstack-core start again? The node should have recovered on its own when you tried to start it again. I’ll take a look as to why this wasn’t the case.
