MPOS is a web based Mining Portal for various crypto currencies. It was originally created by TheSerapher and has hence grown quite large. It's now used by many pools out there and is a good starting point to learn more about mining and running pools in general. There is no active development done on the project by the orignal developers but we still merge PRs!
Donations to this project are going directly to TheSerapher, the original author of this project:

When you decide to use
MPOS please be so kind and leave the footer intact. You are not the author of the software and should honor those that have worked on it. Keeping the footer intact helps spreading the word. Leaving the donation address untouched allows miners to donate to the author.
Pools running MPOS
You can find a list of active pools here.
This setup has been tested on Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 13.04 and CentOS. It should also work on any related distribution (RHEL, Debian).
Be aware that
MPOS is only for pooled mining. Solo Mining is not
supported. They will never match an upstream share, solo miners do not create
any shares, only blocks. Expect weird behavior if trying to mix them. See #299
for full information.

Please take a look at the Quick Start Guide. This will give you an idea how to setup
MPOS. Please be aware that the
master branch is our currently considered stable system while
development is used as a test bed for all upcoming changes for
master. If you wish to run a stable, well tested system ensure you run
git checkout master. If you decide to stick to the
development branch with bleeding edge code and potential bugs, just
git clone the project.
This project was meant to allow users to easily customize the system and templates. Hence no upstream framework was used to keep it as simple as possible. If you are just using the system, there will be no need to adjust anything. Things will work out of the box! But if you plan on creating your own theme, things are pretty easy:
- Create a new theme folder in
- Create a new site_assets folder in
- Create your own complete custom template or copy from an existing one
- Change your theme in the
Admin Paneland point it to the newly created folder
The good thing with this approach: You can keep the backend code updated! Since your new theme will never conflict with existing themes, a simple git pull will keep your installation updated. You decide which new feature you'd like to integrate on your own theme. Bugfixes to the code will work out of the box!
Other customizations are also possible but will require merging changes together. Usually users would not need to change the backend code unless they wish to work
on non-existing features in
MPOS. For the vast majority, adjusting themes should be enough to highlight your pool from others.
In all that, I humbly ask to keep the
MPOS author reference and Github URL intact.
You can contribute to this project in different ways:
- Report outstanding issues and bugs by creating an Issue
- Fork the project, create a branch and file a pull request against development to improve the code itself
This product is not actively developed anymore. For setup and installation support, please find help in other channels. This projects issue tracker is used for bugs and issues with the core code, not for general help in setting up and running pool.
