Tutorial - Dogecoin Node Installation

Use the following commands to install the required libraries and the required packages:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install libboost-all-dev libzmq3-dev libminiupnpc-dev
# apt-get install curl git build-essential libtool autotools-dev
# apt-get install automake pkg-config bsdmainutils python3
# apt-get install software-properties-common libssl-dev libevent-dev

You must use BerkleyDB version 5.1 for everything to work.

Use the following commands to install the BerkleyDB package:

# mkdir /downloads
# cd /downloads
# wget http://download.oracle.com/berkeley-db/db-5.1.29.tar.gz
# tar -zxvf db-5.1.29.tar.gz
# cd db-5.1.29/
# cd db-5.1.29/build_unix
# ../dist/configure --enable-cxx --disable-shared --with-pic
# make install

Download the Dogecoin package.

# cd /downloads
# git clone https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin

Compile and install the Dogecoin node software.

# cd dogecoin/
# ./autogen.sh
# export CPATH=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.5.1/include
# export LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.5.1/lib
# export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.5.1/lib
# ./configure
# make
# make install

Reboot the computer.

# reboot

Create a Dogecoin configuration file and choose a username and a password.

# mkdir /root/.dogecoin
# vi /root/.dogecoin/dogecoin.conf


In our example, we choose the username virtualcoin and the password kamisama.

Start the Dogecoin node daemon using the following command:

# dogecoind -daemon

Wait for the synchronization of the blockchain to end.

The blockchain synchronization might take days or weeks.

Use the following command to verify the status of the blockchain synchronization:

# tail -f /root/.dogecoin/debug.log

Use the following command to stop the Dogecoin node service:

# dogecoin-cli stop
