How to enable ipcapi from geth javascript console?


Try to use :
geth --rpc --rpcaddr="" --rpccorsdomain="*" --rpcapi="db,eth,net,web3,personal,web3" --ipcapi "admin,eth,debug,personal,web3"

if it doesn't work drop the ipcapi part.

then unlock the account using the command : web3.personal.unlockAccount("account","password");
