If you’re looking to start over with the geth blockchain sync, there are a few things you need to know. First, make sure you have a full backup of your geth directory. This includes your keystore, your blockchain data, and your geth configuration file. Once you have a full backup, you can proceed with the following steps:
1) Delete your geth directory. This will remove your keystore, your blockchain data, and your geth configuration file.
2) Download the latest geth release from https://geth.ethereum.org/.
3) Extract the geth archive.
4) Copy your geth configuration file into the geth directory.
5) Start geth. This will create a new geth directory with a new keystore and blockchain data.
6) Run the following commands:
geth –datadir /path/to/geth/data init /path/to/genesis.json
geth –datadir /path/to/geth/data –syncmode fast –cache=1024
The first command will initialize your geth directory with the genesis block. The second command will start the fast sync. Depending on your internet connection and the size of the blockchain, this could take a while.
Once the fast sync is complete, you can start using your geth node.
