    What is the configuration file called for Decred? The sample configuration file is called dcrd.conf, but on the stakeminer.com site (https://dcr.stakeminer.com/tickets) is refers to it as dcrwallet.conf.

    What is the correct name for this config file?

    Thanks.

    Dcrd.conf is the file for the network daemon. Dcrwallet.conf is the file for the wallet. There is also a third one for dcrctl. You need all of them; have a look through, they're quite well documented. Basically, pretty much anything that can be given on the command line can go into the conf.

    For PoS mining you should save all your credentials to dcrwallet.conf (ticketaddress, pooladdress etc)

    what directory are these located in?
    under C:/Program Fies/Decred/Paymetheus/ I only see a dcrd.conf file. I see the application files for dcrctl.exe dcrd.exe, and dcrwallet.exe also in that directory but no .conf files for these.

    If you use GUI wallet Paymetheus, just ignore those instructions in stakepool website. They are for command line dcrwallet.
    Instead, you should just import API KEY from your Settings page to the paymetheus and it will import all necessary scripts and addresses for you.

    Check official instruction here:

    If I use the API KEY in the Paymetheus wallet, can I also use it for automatic purchasing or do I have to manually start it over-and-over again?

    You have to purchase tickets manually every time. You can use command line wallet dcrwallet for automatic ticket purchasing (should be online & unlocked all the time)

    Thanks! Do you know if there is a way to get an alert so you actually know you can repurchase?

    What stakepool do you use? I can add such optional email alerts to this pool: https://stakepool.dcrstats.com (also, you can access all your tickets via JSON API if you know how to write monitoring scripts).
    I don't know if other stake pools offer any "voted ticket" alerts.

    Nope, don't know how to do that. I joined Ultrapool.eu. Since I'm not sure they provide these alerts, I'll ask them. If not, I can always switch next time. Thanks again for your answer.
