I am trying to attach geth.ipc by using following command.

geth attach ./.ethereum/geth.ipc 

But getting below error.

Fatal: Unable to attach to remote geth: dial unix ./.ethereum/geth.ipc: connect: connection refused

Note : geth.ipc file exists that i checked using sudo find -name *.ipc command and it returns me ./.ethereum/geth.ipc and it was working till yesterday.


I was getting this error because i had to run start geth before attaching the ipc file.So before geth attach ./.ethereum/geth.ipc command i had to run

sudo geth --rpcapi eth,web3,personal --rpc --networkid=15
