I have checked and
bitcoind is running. I followed the instructions on bitcoin.org and used the tar.gz file to install Bitcoin Core. I am trying to follow this guide to set up a Lightning node. I have also checked that the initial block download has completed.
I don’t want to run on the testnet, which is what I assume will happen if I change the
bitcoin.conf file to set
network=testnet, I want to run the node on the mainnet. How can I do this?
