can't apply any contract, cant send any ETH. Mist is on the actual block, time is updated - nothing works. what to do? on etherscan it still shows my balance. always stuck on 0 out of 12 confirmations
Ok I fixed it myself by deleting the chaindata and resyncing... nothing else worked.
1) Go to myetherwallet (or any other wallet that lets you adjust gas price) 2) Using the same account for which you are having troubles deploying, send 0 ether from that account to any account of your choosing 3) Set the gas price significantly higher than the previous transactions (for good measure I just go for 2x higher gas price) 4) Increase gas limit (not clear whether or not this has any impact) 5) Send transaction
This one should show up in the blockchain explorers, and once it's marked as successful you should be able to start sending transactions again. Not sure exactly why but I think it has to do with the nonce.
