Error when trying to add watchtower on 0.5.1


I’m running 0.5.1 and am trying to add a watchtower. I was following the instructions (Umbrel Troubleshooting Guide under the section “how do I add a watchtower to my node?”)

I added the below to my lnd.conf file which on my machine is found here (umbrel/app-data/lightning/data/lnd/lnd.conf)



when I use this command:

docker exec -it lightning-terminal_web_1 lncli wtclient add

with the watchtower I’m trying to add at the end, I get this error:

[lncli] could not load global options: could not load TLS cert file: open /data/.lnd/tls.cert: no such file or directory

I went looking at the folder it was referencing this is where I found the tls.cert file


seems the program is looking for .lnd folder. Has anyone tried/successful adding a new watchtower on 0.5.1?

Thanks for any help.

I am having the same issue. Thanks for posting amafaskrowten.
