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 0.13.6.x version to the latest 0.13.6.3. If you are upgrading from a 0.13.4.x or 0.13.5.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.
- Log on to your Znode
- Copy a link to the Linux archive from GitHub or Bitbucket by right-clicking the file name (zcoin-qt-0.13.6.2-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://bitbucket.org/zcoinofficial/zcoin/downloads/zcoin-qt-0.13.6.3-linux64.tar.gzThis will download the archive to your Znode
- Stop the zcoin daemon
cd ~/zcoin-0.13.6/bin(this is the folder of the version you are upgrading from)
and remove the old version
rm -rv zcoin-0.13.6(see above)
- Unpack the downloaded archive by typing
tar xvzf zcoin-qt-0.13.6.3-linux64.tar.gz
- Now you can start your Znode again
cd ~/zcoin-0.13.6/bin(new version)
When upgrading from a 0.13.4.x version your Znode will go through a mandatory reindex upon the first start of the daemon. You can follow the process by periodically checking the output of
./zcoin-cli getinfo and wait till it shows the current block (as seen on our block explorer) or wait till
./zcoin-cli znsync status shows the status “ZNODE_SYNC_FINISHED”.
