Getting Started Quickly¶
You can skip most of the information in this tutorial should you wish to do so and go straight ahead to install the full node.
If you haven’t already, just make sure your server matches the The Requirements.
A few setup steps are required before you can run the click’n’go installation command:
When you are logged in to your server, make sure you are root (run
If that is not the case run
sudo su - to become root and enter the password if you are required to do so.
For CentOS you might need to install
screen before you can proceed:
yum install curl screen -y
If you are missing these utilities on Ubuntu you can install them:
apt-get install curl screen -y
Run the Installer!¶
First, let’s ensure the installation is running within a “screen” session. This ensures that the installer stays running in the background if the connection to the server breaks:
screen -S iota
Now we can run the installer:
bash <(curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nuriel77/iri-playbook/master/fullnode_install.sh)
If during the installation you are requested to reboot the node, just do so and re-run the command above once the node is back.
That’s it. You can proceed to the Post Installation for additional information on managing your node.
If you lost connection to your server during the installation, don’t worry. It is running in the background because we are running it inside a “screen” session .
You can always “reattach” back that session when you re-connect to your server:
screen -r -d iota
Pressing arrow up on the keyboard will scroll up the command history you’ve been running. This saves some typing when you need to run the same command again!
Some VPS providers might be depending on Network Block Devices (for example Scaleway). If using Ubuntu, you need to configure ufw prior to running the installer. See: https://gist.github.com/georgkreimer/7a02af49604da91c5e3605b08b2872ec
Accessing Peer Manager¶
You can access the peer manager using the user ‘iotapm’ and the password you’ve configured during installation:
