So I am setting up a server late tonight to be of service and to learn. I am going to put everything here, because frankly, I'm about 40 years old and have never been in any single formal computer related education class in my life. This is how I learned to mine, and to control multiple miners, self-taught. However this feels more like jumping in the "deep end of the pool" (no pun intended).
If anyone could take a look at my set up procedure below and tell me if I have made any mistakes that would be great. I am paying $30 a month to support this server, so we should get the best out of it as a community!
Anyway, if you know this stuff please review, as I have never done this before, ever - below is everything I typed into PuTTy so far
, and right now the blockchain is downloading
Sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ssh
apt-get install python-setuptools
python -m easy_install
sudo apt-get install git-core
sudo adduser litecoin
enter password – *************
su – litecoin
sudo adduser litecoin sudo
mkdir ~/bin ~/src
ls -la ~/ | more
mkdir -p ~/electrum-server
git clone https://github.com/pooler/electrum-ltc-server.git electrum-server
sudo apt-get install make g++ python-leveldb libboost-all-dev libssl-dev libdb++-dev pkg-config libminiupnpc-dev git
su - litecoin
make -f makefile.unix
cp -a ~/src/litecoin/src/litecoind ~/bin/litecoind
(does not exists! stumped why this did not work at first)
(worked!! and saved)
rpcuser=<rpc-username> actual = ***************
rpcpassword=<rpc-password> actual = **********************
“command not found”
(the file is there - why won't it run???)
“litecoind: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.24, BuildID[sha1]=0x9cd14fe6858038bffd10498c322536581beeb61b, stripped”
“litecoin server starting”
(It worked!!! Blockchain downloading!!)
Is everything okay so far? I plan to have this up and running as a permanent Litecoin Electrum server for us during the next week, unless I run into something I cannot figure out, but that is what community is for
I got the server in Amsterdam because I figured there would be plenty of usa capacity - if you want i can move it just about anywhere bandwidth is needed - please let me know.
Also go easy on me - I am sure this is full of mistakes, but please point them out!!
