VPS MN CONFIGURATION
connect your VPS with ssh, get and run the DarkPayCoin M N install script :
rm dpc_mn_install.sh // if you’re updating from previous version
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/DarkPayCoin/releases/master/dpc_mn_install.sh && chmod +x dpc_mn_install.sh && ./dpc_mn_install.sh
Answer the script and provide your MN private key (or generate new one and put it in masternode.conf local cold wallet file) to auto-configure .
You can monitor it with :
tail -f ~/.darkpaycoin/debug.log
Once finished you can restart cold wallet .
MN ACTIVATION FROM COLD WALLET
Your masternode will appear in the list as « MISSING », it is normal.
Wait for at least 10 confirmations of your collateral tx and your wallet has fully synced.
Start your masternode from the UI, or you can also start it in the cold wallet console :
Masternode start-alias 0 MNALIAS
VPS commands :
systemctl status darkpaycoin.service systemctl start darkpaycoin.service systemctl stop darkpaycoin.service
In your VPS debug.log file the output shows MN is active.
