cape town noob here digging a deeper and deeper hole trying to set up my first MN, monoeci.
i tried aziz199505's steemit tutorial first and ended up with 'WATCHDOG EXPIRED' as MN status
i'm sure it's because creating a crontab failed using his instructions.
i then tried Cliff's tutorial on the same server, but this doesn't sync, reporting:
i'm sure this is because the second set of instructions seems to have created a different private key and receiving address to the ones i generated first time round.
I now have 1000 coins stuck in the address i generated first time round, which i can't figure out how to access.
I'm pretty sure the best thing to do from here would be to delete my VPS instance and start again from scratch (or go nodeshare!) - but how do i delete this masternode instance and reclaim my 1000 coins from the address i sent them?
i hope that makes sense.
any help hugely appreciated
