I am trying to use truffle to migrate with the following command

truffle migrate --network ropsten

and I face the following error

The method eth_accounts does not exist/is not available

I tried to enter geth and inspect using

> eth.accounts

Error: The method eth_accounts does not exist/is not available

    at web3.js:6347:15
    at get (web3.js:6247:38)
    at <unknown>

Anyone has similar experience or know how to solve it ?

    did you enable eth in the cmd or not? something like --rpcapi db,eth,net,web3,personal

You must specify the parameters using --rpcapi="db,eth,net,web3,personal"

    Is it intentional that web3 appears twice there?
