If I am testing a private blockchain and I want to reset it, and delete all contracts, etc., what needs to be deleted?

Is it enough to delete the .parity folder on every node?



parity --chain dev db kill

If you have your own config.json, it works the same:

parity --chain config.json db kill

Note, you have to do it on all nodes running that chain/config.

  • I did this. I also deleted the chains, signer, dapps, and cache directories under .parity/. I did this on all nodes. But the old contracts still show up as options to "Transfer" ETH to. – stone.212 Nov 21 '17 at 4:51
  • Ah, you have to clear your browser cache (local storage). – Afr Nov 21 '17 at 9:43
  • I did that and anyway, I don't allow any local storage to my browser. I just checked now and there are no applications that are permitted to use local storage on my browser. But I hit "clear now" anyway and the old contracts are still visible. – stone.212 Nov 21 '17 at 23:22
  • Then I have no idea what you are talking about. Maybe hit me up on Gitter and share some screenshots. – Afr Nov 23 '17 at 13:58
