This question already has an answer here:
I am trying to follow a tutorial to deploy a smart contrat on Ropsten Testnet. I am in part 4. Deploy the contract to Ropsten test network:
However, I am stuck at the point when creating a new account with truffle. The line: truffle(default)> web3.personal.newAccount('verystrongpassword')
Should create a new account and give me the adress. But there is a 800A138F problem coming up.
I tried changing truffle.js to another name. The error doesn't come up but in the comand line what happens is that truffle opens up again like nothing has happened and in the folder there is a new web3.personal.newAccount('testpassword1234') file created.
