The world's first HDD-mined cryptocurrency using an energy efficient and fair Proof-of-Capacity (PoC) consensus algorithm.
This wallet version is developed and maintained by the PoC consortium (PoCC) and supports a multitude of database backends. The two builtin backends are:
- MariaDB (recommended)
- H2 (embedded, easier install)
Other DB backends are supported by the Burstcoin DB manager: https://github.com/PoC-Consortium/burstcoin-db-manager

Download and install MariaDB https://mariadb.com/downloads/mariadb-tx
The MariaDb installation will ask to setup a password for the root user.
Add this password to the
brs.properties file created above in the following section:
DB.Url=jdbc:mariadb://localhost:3306/brs_master DB.Username=root DB.Password=YOUR_PASSWORD
The MariaDB installation will also install HeidiSQL, a gui tool to administer MariaDb.
Use it to connect to the newly created mariaDb server and create a new DB called
Plase use beatsbears' comfortable script https://github.com/beatsbears/macos_burst/ to install and maintain the Burst wallet on your Mac. An older howto at ecomineearth https://ecomine.earth/macoswalletinstallguide/ basically describes the manual steps the script above does for you.

The Debian and Ubuntu packages provide an automatic configuration of your local mariadb server. If you can't use the packages, you have to initialize your database with these statements:
echo "CREATE DATABASE brs_master; CREATE USER 'brs_user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'yourpassword'; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON brs_master.* TO 'brs_user'@'localhost';" | mysql -uroot mysql -uroot < init-mysql.sql
Configure your Wallet
Now you need to add the following stuff to your
DB.Url=jdbc:mariadb://localhost:3306/brs_master DB.Username=brs_user DB.Password=yourpassword
