Tutorial - Litecoin Cash Node Installation

On the Ubuntu Linux console, use the following commands to install the BerkleyDB package:

# add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
# apt-get update
# apt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev

You must use BerkleyDB version 4.8 for everything to work.

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

# 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

Create a directory to the node software and download the Litecoin Cash package.

# mkdir /downloads
# cd /downloads
# git clone https://github.com/litecoincash-project/litecoincash

Compile and install the Litecoin Cash node software.

# cd litecoincash
# chown root.root * -R
# chmod 755 autogen.sh
# chmod 755 share/genbuild.sh
# ./autogen.sh
# ./configure
# make
# make install

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

# mkdir ~/.litecoincash
# vi $HOME/.litecoincash/litecoincash.conf


In our example, we choose the username virtualcoin2018 and the password kamisama123.

Start the Litecoin Cash node daemon using the following command:

# litecoincashd -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 ~/.litecoincash/debug.log

Use the following command to stop the Litecoin Cash node service:

# litecoincash-cli stop
