For detailed information on node installation and management please refer to the wiki of this repository.

Quick start Rise installation (Mainnet)

First, perform some basic checks:

  • MAKE SURE NOT TO RUN AS ROOT OR WITH SUDO
  • Your user will need sudo privileges, though
  • PostgresSQL must not be installed on your server

Then go home:

cd $HOME

Download the installer:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/RiseVision/rise-build/master/scripts/install.sh

Install Rise:

bash install.sh install -r mainnet -u https://downloads.rise.vision/core/mainnet/latest.tar.gz

The installer will start the node automatically if installation was successful.

(Optional) Fast sync from a snapshot

cd rise
wget https://downloads.rise.vision/snapshots/mainnet/latest -O latestsnap.gz
./manager.sh restoreBackup latestsnap.gz

Basic node management

Installer will create a rise folder in your homedir. Make sure to cd to this dir when managing your node.

Check the status of your node with:

./manager.sh status

Stop node with:

./manager.sh stop node

Insert your passphrase so you can forge:

nano etc/node_config.json

And change this section to include your passphrase:

{
  "fileLogLevel": "error",
  "forging": {
    "secret": [ "my secret" ],
    "access": {
      "whiteList": [ "127.0.0.1" ]
    }
  }
}

And finally restart your node to apply the changes:

./manager.sh reload node

Quick start Rise installation (Testnet)

The same as above, only the install step is different:

bash install.sh install -r testnet -u https://downloads.rise.vision/core/testnet/latest.tar.gz

(Optional) Fast sync from a snapshot

wget https://downloads.rise.vision/snapshots/testnet/latest -O latestsnap.gz
./manager.sh restoreBackup latestsnap.gz
