Tutorial - Electroneum Node Installation

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

# 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/

Create an Electroneum configuration file.

# mkdir ~/.electroneum
# vi ~/.electroneum/electroneum.conf


Start the Electroneum node daemon using the following command:

# electroneumd --detach

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/.electroneum/electroneum.log

To start Electroneum as a service, you need to use the following commands.

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


Description=Electroneum Full Node






ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/electroneumd --config-file /root/.electroneum/electroneum.conf --detach --pidfile /var/run/electroneumd.pid



Enable Electroneum as a service and test if it is working using the following commands:

# systemctl enable electroneumd
# service electroneumd start
