Need help on command input

#1

i currently have zcash running in behind the scenes and i have this that still pops up for what i assume the commands are to be wrote in. "~/.zcash$ " i have typed commands next to this but none of them are working. i can't find out my wallet info or generate a new one any technical advice to what im maybe doing wrong?

You should have a .zcash (with period) folder and zcash (no period) folder. Use the zcash (no period) to run commands. example: ./src/zcash-cli getinfo

ok i tried that but now it says no such file or directory.

To use zcashd you must set an rpcpassword in the configuration file:
/home/eliyahuyaakov/.zcash/zcash.conf
It is recommended you use the following random password:
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
(you do not need to remember this password)
The username and password MUST NOT be the same.
If the file does not exist, create it with owner-readable-only file permissions.
It is also recommended to set alertnotify so you are notified of problems;
for example: alertnotify=echo %s | mail -s "Zcash Alert" admin@foo.com

You are probably not in the correct directory when you run the command. the prompt in the terminal should be zcash $

Then you can enter ./src/zcash-cli getinfo
