Here’s a quick step-by-step guide to get your Znode up and running with the latest version in a few minutes. This guide assumes you are upgrading from a previous 0.13.8.x version to the latest 0.13.8.4. If you are upgrading from earlier versions, please adjust the folder paths in step 4 accordingly.
Please note that there is no reason to wait for a payout, as an update completed within a timeframe of 3 hours after first stopping the daemon, will not interfere with your qualification for a reward.
- Log on to your Znode
- Copy a link to the Linux archive from GitHub or Bitbucket by right-clicking the file name (e.g. zcoin-0.13.7.4-linux64.tar.gz) and selecting the copy link menu item in your browser
- On the Znode’s command line, type “wget” and insert the copied link after it like so:
wget https://github.com/zcoinofficial/zcoin/releases/download/v0.13.8.4/zcoin-0.13.8.4-linux64.tar.gzThis will download the archive to your Znode
- Stop the zcoin daemon
cd ~/zcoin-0.13.8/bin(this is the folder of the major version you are upgrading from)
and remove the old version
rm -rv zcoin-0.13.8(see above)
- Unpack the downloaded archive by typing
tar xvzf zcoin-0.13.8.4-linux64.tar.gz
- Now you can start your Znode again
cd ~/zcoin-0.13.8/bin(new version)
