My blockchain files keep getting corrupted

The blockchain database may get corrupted as a result of the Ardor software being forcefully terminated, in a way that doesn't allow the server to close the database properly. You should be able to see "Database shutdown completed" in the log before shutdown, as a sign that data files have been properly closed. To prevent data corruption when closing Ardor:

  • In Windows, use Ctrl-C to shut down the process in the terminal window
  • In UNIX, use kill -15 #ID PROCESS. (Jean-Luc)
