Run an Electronero Node on a VPS

Last revised: May 7th, 2017(forked from Electronero)


electronerod is the daemon software that ships with the Electronero tree. It is a console program, and manages the blockchain. While a bitcoin wallet manages both an account and the blockchain, Electronero separates these: electronerod handles the blockchain, and electronero-wallet-cli handles the account.

This guide assumes you have already set up your VPS account and are using SSH to tunnel into the server console.

Linux, 64-bit (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS)

Make sure that port 26777 is open

electronerod uses this port to communicate with other nodes on the Electronero network.

Example if using ufw: sudo ufw allow 26777 Example if using iptables: sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 26777 -j ACCEPT

Download the current Electronero Core binaries


Make a directory and extract the files.

mkdir electronero
tar -xjvf linux64 -C electronero

Launch the daemon

cd electronero


Show list of all options and settings:

./electronerod --help

Launch the daemon as a background process:

./electronerod --detach

Monitor the output of electronerod if running as daemon:

tail -f ~/.bitelectronero/bitelectronero.log

Keep the VPS secure with autoupdate:
