Hey there! I’m writing a “How To” article on Medium with a step-by-step guide to moving your files to IPFS.
I’m trying to replicate the steps I took, and I get stuck after I
init the repo. I cannot get to the readme.
I have tried the command:
ipfs cat /ipfs/QmYwAPJzv5CZsnA625s3Xf2nemtYgPpHdWEz79ojWnPbdG/readme
which was referenced in the IPFS Getting Started docs and [this tutorial] (https://flyingzumwalt.gitbooks.io/decentralized-web-primer/content/install-ipfs/lessons/initialize-repository.html), but all I get is:
Error: merkledag: not found
I realize that my version spit out an updated hash for the readme when I originally entered
ipfs init, but I didn’t save this and I can’t recreate it without deleting my IPFS repo.
I apologize if there is an obvious answer. N00b to IPFS but it!
