Tutorial - Electroneum Node Installation

On the Ubuntu Linux console, you need to use the following commands to create a new user and install the required libraries and the required packages:

# useradd -m electroneum
# apt-get update
# apt-get install build-essential cmake pkg-config libboost-all-dev
# apt-get install libssl-dev libunbound-dev libminiupnpc-dev
# apt-get install libunwind8-dev liblzma-dev libldns-dev
# apt-get install libexpat1-dev libgtest-dev doxygen graphviz

Now, let's compile and install gtest.

# cd /usr/src/gtest
# cmake .
# make
# cp libg* /usr/lib/

Create a directory to the node software and download the Electroneum package.

# mkdir /downloads
# cd /downloads
# git clone https://github.com/electroneum/electroneum

Compile and install the Electroneum node software.

# cd electroneum/
# make
# cd build/release/bin/
# install -sv electroneum-blockchain-export electroneumd /usr/local/bin/
# install -sv electroneum-wallet-rpc electroneum-blockchain-import /usr/local/bin/
# install -sv electroneum-wallet-cli /usr/local/bin/

Let's create the configuration files required to start the Electrum node at boot time.

# vi /etc/systemd/system/electroneumd.service


Description=Electroneum Full Node




ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/electroneumd --detach

Now, we need to enable the Electrum node to start at boot time.

# systemctl enable electroneumd
# systemctl daemon-reload

Reboot the computer and check if the Electroneum service was started automatically.

# reboot
# service electroneumd status

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 /home/electroneum/.electroneum/electroneum.log

The system should now open TCP ports 26967 and 26968.

Use the following command to check if the TCP ports are open.

# netstat -nl | grep 269

tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
