From past suggestions, I understood that I can verify my hardware wallet transactions with the help of Electrum Server. I synced a full bitcoin node with txindex=1, but can not get Electrum app to connect to the local server. I followed this tutorial online: but the link to documentation for electrumx.conf does not work and can't find it. Also tried installing Electrum Personal Server with no luck! Suggestions??

what exactly is it that you are trying to do?
by "verify transaction" do you mean check if it is a valid transaction or do you mean "confirm" as in include in a block? if it is the former you do not need to verify it! the transaction is valid and when you broadcast it to the network you will be informed if it weren't. but if you mean the later (confirm) then you are very confused about how things work in bitcoin.

You might want to start with the actual problem you are facing.

It is hard for us to guess what went wrong.

You need an electrum server running to be able to connect to it with electrum.

If you only want to verify whether you have received the transaction yourself, but don't explicitly want to have the luxury of simply opening electrum, i'd suggest to simply run the core CLI and enter:

gettransaction TRANSACTION_ID

You will get all necessary information about the transaction id (sender/receiver/confirmations/..).

This takes less work and configuration than setting up an electrum server, but isn't that convenient for daily usage.
