How to restore a wallet from mnemonic seed on Monero CLI
Open the terminal on your Monero CLI directory and run the following command:
- Linux: `./monero-wallet-cli --restore-deterministic-wallet`
- Windows: `monero-wallet-cli --restore-deterministic-wallet`
Next, you will be asked for a wallet file name. Enter the name of the wallet you want to create and press `Enter`.
Monero CLI will then ask you to give your wallet a password and confirm it. Since your wallet will hold your private keys and seed, it is really important to enter a strong password.
Next, enter your 25 word mnemonic seed.
Next, Monero CLI will ask for a `Restore height`. Even though it is optional, it's not recommended to leave it blank, since setting a restore height makes your wallet synchronization faster. Ideally it should be the number of the block which included the first incoming transaction to your wallet. Alternatively, you can also enter the date or an estimated date (YYYY-MM-DD format) of the first incoming transaction.
After you have entered restore height, Monero CLI will then restore your wallet and start the wallet synchronization. Please be patient as this process may take a while. You will need to wait for it to finish before start using your wallet.
If you run into any trouble, running `./monero-wallet-cli --help` will show you the options available to you at wallet startup. Once you're inside your wallet, running the `help` command will list the help for the commands available to you within the wallet.
My restored wallet is showing a wrong balance
This problem usually occurs when you set a restore height that is higher than the block height of the first incoming transaction to your wallet. To solve this issue, you will have to change the wallet restore height.
