Guide to help you setup your masternode with Crave on a VPS.
VPS From Vultr : https://goo.gl/mxcb24
500 Tokens from Cryptopia : https://goo.gl/auqctL
FTP : fillezilla
Putty : http://www.putty.org/
Once you have created and launched your masternode VPS, login as root and create a new user:
Run these commands:
usermod -aG sudo newUsername
Run these commands to make a swapfile (for small VPS) :
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/swap.img bs=1024k count=1000
sudo mkswap /var/swap.img
sudo swapon /var/swap.img
Run free again to confirm you now have a swapfile. Note: If you chose a different server
option from Vultr, with less RAM, you’ll need a LARGER swapfile, i.e. set the count
parameter to something larger like 2048, 4096 etc. If the compilation steps fails partway
through this is usually the reason.
To make the swap file persist when the server is rebooted:
sudo chmod 0600 /var/swap.img
sudo chown root:root /var/swap.img
sudo nano /etc/fstab
Append the following line to the end of the file:
/var/swap.img none swap sw 0 0
Save the file and exit
Step 3: Firewall ( can do this step at anytime )
sudo ufw allow OpenSSH
sudo ufw allow 9999
sudo ufw default deny incoming
sudo ufw default allow outgoing
sudo ufw enable
Step 4 : Compiling the wallet
sudo apt-get install git
git clone https://github.com/CooleRRSA/crave.git
Step 5: You need to install dependencies
sudo apt-get -y update && sudo apt-get -y install build-essential libssl-dev libdb++-dev libboost-all-dev libcrypto++-dev libqrencode-dev libminiupnpc-dev libgmp-dev libgmp3-dev autoconf autogen automake libtool
- You need to enter your Crave folder, use WinSCP to find the path. For exemple if the path is /home/crave , you need to use this command :
sudo make -f makefile.unix
If there is a file named "craved", then your wallet is ready.
Step 7 Run Wallet to generate conf. error will be presented here.
Now you need to configure your wallet, first we need to close the wallet and edit the conf file :
sudo nano crave.conf
With Nano add the following:
Save the file.
Now we restart the wallet and we wait it the get fully synced
Step 8 When your wallet is synced, you need to setup the masternode
./craved masternode genkey
Step 9 Lets create a new receiving address
./craved getaccountaddress 0
This address will receive your coins. Save also this one in the txt file.
Open your Windows wallet if it isnt yet and send exactly 500 crave to this address. You'll have to pay a fee in addition.
You now need to wait for 10 confirmations before we continue.
Step 10 Encrypt wallet
./craved encryptwallet YOUR_WALLET_PASSWORD
Step 11 Edit Conf
sudo nano crave.conf
The conf file must look like that :
Masternodeaddr is the ip and the port used by your VPS. The port must be open.
Masternodeprivekey is the string you got from the "masternodegenkey" command.
Step 12 You need to restart the wallet now
The wallet in now ready to run the masternode
You should get 500.00000000
We can now start the masternode
./craved masternode start YOUR_WALLET_PASSWORD
