I'm reading this article for Windows Bitcoin mining
Now, it tells me I need to create a Username and Password, but, when I run the batch, it says:
Wrong Username or Password
How does the Bitcoin client know my password? How do I set it?
Check the rpcuser and rpcpass settings in your bitcoin.conf file. It should be located in either
Note that unless you have a really high hash rate (multiple computers with multiple video cards each), you're probably better off doing pooled mining instead of solo mining. Instead of having your mining program connect to the bitcoin client on your computer, you would have it connect to the pool's servers. I haven't used GUIminer, but I believe it's preconfigured to allow you to connect to one of several popular pools.
