As I was using an older version of wallet Qt on my mac (126.96.36.199) I decided to update to the newer one (188.8.131.52).
I made a backup of wallet.dat and then update my wallet. After that I also changed my passphrase. I did a minor change from a password like “hello” to “hello!”. Just adding a symbol for extra security.
Few minutes later I went on to unlock my wallet for staking purposes. Now I am getting this error: “The passphrase entered for the wallet decryption was incorrect”. I then entered the old password again and I got the same error. Tried different passwords just in case but still having this error. Note that I am 100% sure the password I enter is correct.
Any clue what might gone wrong? Also I have the old wallet.dat file. I can recover my old wallet right? If so what is the procedure?
Thanks in advance,
I was able to get access on my wallet by using the backup wallet.dat file. I will try to change my password again and see if it succeeds this time. I will update you.
