Znode Upgrade Guide

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 an earlier 0.13.7.x version to the latest 0.13.7.6. If you are upgrading from a 0.13.4.x, 0.13.5.x or 0.13.6.x version, 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.

  1. Log on to your Znode
  2. 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
  3. 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/v0.13.7.6/zcoin-0.13.7.6-linux64.tar.gz This will download the archive to your Znode
  4. Stop the zcoin daemon
    cd ~/zcoin-0.13.7/bin (this is the folder of the major version you are upgrading from)
    ./zcoin-cli stop
    and remove the old version
    cd ~
    rm -rv zcoin-0.13.7 (see above)
  5. Unpack the downloaded archive by typing
    tar xvzf zcoin-0.13.7.6-linux64.tar.gz
  6. Now you can start your Znode again
    cd ~/zcoin-0.13.7/bin (new version)
    ./zcoind -daemon

While you’re at it, don’t forget to upgrade your local wallet too! Just download from our website and install replacing the old version. Just make sure to always have a backup of your wallet.dat!
