Join the PSN and get a local node running via Linux with these steps.
- Open up terminal and fill in the following commands.
- sudo apt-get update
- sudo apt-get install docker.io
- In below instructions, replace the following variables to fit you:
- THE_DIRECTORY_FOR_YOUR_NODE = where your node files will be stores. Example: /home/yourname/psn
- YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS_HERE = the wallet address fo your node. Example: '0xwhatever'. Warning: single quotes must not be removed!
- NAME_OF_YOUR_NODE_HERE = what you want to call your node. Example: AFusioniteNode
- Type: sudo nano runpsn.sh
- Paste in the following line with your corresponding replacements:
- sudo docker run -v THE_DIRECTORY_FOR_YOUR_NODE:/fusion-node fusionnetwork/efsn -u 'YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS_HERE' -eNAME_OF_YOUR_NODE_HERE
- Run the following commands:
- sudo chmod +x runpsn.sh
- sudo ./runpsn.sh
- You will see that the node doesn't run because the password file and keystore are missing. Don't worry, move to next step.
- Put your keystore in the THE_DIRECTORY_FOR_YOUR_NODE/data/keystore folder
- Put your password file with filename "password.txt" in THE_DIRECTORY_FOR_YOUR_NODE/. Note: the file must be saved as a .txt file.
- run ./runpsn.sh again.
- VOILA A NODE RUNNING!!!
