Migration guide

  • Improved Aion directory structure to better manage distinct network configuration and database files.

    ./aion.sh -n [valid network] -d [valid datadir]
    

    For more information see Command Line Interface Documentation.

    The default command ./aion.sh is set to launch the Kilimanjaro mainnet.
    For old configurations on any type of network the first execution of ./aion.sh will migrate the configuration to the new structure as described in Importing a Pre-Existing Configuration. Future executions must use the -n [valid network] option when not launching the default main network.
