Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

What are recommended bitcoin.conf settings when using c-lightning?

I'm running full (non-pruned) bitcoin core 0.20 on Ubuntu 18. My current bitcoin.conf is:
txindex=1 listenonion=0 server=1 rpcuser=xxx rpcpassword=xxx rpcthreads=1 
If I use c-lightning, what changes do I need to make to the above file? Thanks in advance.

Wassabi modifications to bitcoin.conf makes port 8333 unreachable

I've been trying to track down why my bitcoin node can't be reached through port 8333, even though I have correct port forwarding rules set up on my router, and have allowed traffic on 8333 on my firewall. I checked bitcoin.conf, and noticed a section at the bottom modified by Wasabi:
main.listen = 1
main.whitebind = 127.0.0.1:8333
main.rpcbind = 127.0.0.1
main.rpcallowip = 127.0.0.1
main.rpcport = 8332
I can't remember making these changes, but I suppose it's possible. Would these bitcoin.conf changes have been made Wasabi? There was a comment at the bottom of bitcoin.conf saying these changes were made through wassabee. At any rate, commenting them out restored normal bitcoin connectivity. My port can be seen as open at canyouseeme.org.
What are the implications to Wasabi of leaving these lines commented out?
Edit: spelling
Edit 2: Clarification

Question about "paytxfee" config variable for bitcoin.conf

Hello,
I noticed that there is an option that you can specify in the bitcoin-core application called "paytxfee" and the example is given as shown below:
#Pay a transaction fee every time you send bitcoins. #paytxfee=0.000x 
I'm trying to find a clear explanation of what the "x" is referring to for this value.
If i were to use the following commands to estimate a fee for confirmation within 10 transactions, i would get the following:
$ bitcoin-cli estimatesmartfee 10 { "feerate": 0.00012265, "blocks": 10 } 
I could then use the command bitcoin-cli settxfee 0.00012265 and i would then have set my transaction fee to a value of 0.00012265 btc per kb as my fee -- my question is as follows:

If i were to set a value of paytxfee=0.05x, what would this mean? Would that mean it would use 5% of the value already calculated with estimatesmartfee? Any clarification would be helpful :)

Cheers!

Bitcoin.conf unwritable

Using raspberry pi 4 running raspian, I tried to edit the bitcoin.conf file (which I have done before) with sudo nano and it says file is unwritable. How to fix this?

To signal non-support of Segwit2X, add uacomment=NO2X to bitcoin.conf and restart

Find your bitcoin.conf file, and add the following line:
uacomment=NO2X
Then restart your node.
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Running_Bitcoin#Bitcoin.conf_Configuration_File
You can also do this via the command line, eg:
bitcoind.exe -uacomment=NO2X

To signal non-support of Segwit2X, upgrade to 0.15, add uacomment=NO2X to bitcoin.conf and restart

To ensure you do not get forked onto the S2X chain, you do not need to do anything. If you want to be vocal about your non-support of NYA/S2X, then you can do the following.
Upgrade to Bitcoin 0.15 - https://bitcoin.org/en/download
Find your bitcoin.conf file, and add the following line:
uacomment=NO2X
Then restart your node.
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Running_Bitcoin#Bitcoin.conf_Configuration_File
You can also do this via the command line, eg:
bitcoind.exe -uacomment=NO2X
We are currently sitting at just over 100 NO2X nodes: https://bitnodes.21.co/nodes/?q=NO2X
as well as over 2000 0.15+ nodes

ElectrumX and bitcoin.conf txindex=1

I've set up an electrumx server and let it sync all blocks without setting txindex=1 in my bitcoin.conf file. Now, I'm obviously realizing my mistake as my wallet is missing transactions. if I were to go and set txindex=1 and reindex my full node, do I need to do anything on the electrumx side of things to also resync it's blocks?

Bitcoin Core painfully slow sync times + missing bitcoin.conf file?

So I've always had trouble syncing my bitcoin qt client, the times are painfully slow, (if it's even progressing at all) and I found out that the bitcoin.conf file is not created automatically and couldn't find out how to create one, there are so many flags to use. Any help?

Please help - why is my Bitcoin Conf file in the wrong directory?

I am running a Bitcoin Core GUI-based full node on Windows 10. The conf file is in my bitcoin data directory, instead of being in the appdata/roaming folder. But bitcoind and bitcoin-cli continue to look for the conf file in that appdata/roaming folder, which I guess is the reason the bitcoind server never appears to start. However, Bitcoin-qt (the GUI) appears to work fine and is also pointing to the conf file correctly. I checked by opening the conf file from the settings>options.

How do I start bitcoind and check if it is running or not? If I run it on cmd, it appears to start downloading the whole blockchain again, which is unnecessary because I already have all of it.
