Mount Location Node

Remember the hash of the files root directory: QmV5ZVQxXURKPDcVDW8WjpLCiQYvNzg173XcB6rYFevoXm

Public To Master Net

Just execute ipfs daemon, the wiki file would to send to the ipfs net.

The example is this

Public To IPNS

Since one hash corresponding one not modifable content, if update a website, the website hash would be changed, and other old links can't find this new website.

For resolve this problem, ipfs support a basic component names IPNS.

ipfs allow user to create an additional message with a file hash and a private key, and use a pubkeyhash to indicate your lastest website version.

The operation command is blow:

Finish it now, we have a fixed link to bundle a website: QmPS5NRXPCeAUtofKbW7c58Qm4PpM8mPEVJvaooE13LF78

Bundling Validation

ipfs name resolve QmPS5NRXPCeAUtofKbW7c58Qm4PpM8mPEVJvaooE13LF78


Use IPNS To Access Fixed Node Hash:


When verification successful, we will see this result:

Decentration Validation

Now we assume the node that recived our data is first node. Then we create another node in location to simulate the second node.

Open web console:

In the second node, we also can use IPFS HASH to find the ipfs-wiki-system content of first node.

And we can see our data has spreaded to 275 nodes in the ipfs console. In other words, there are 274 nodes have recorded our data in there own 'book'. So we don't warry about any disaster. If one node is well, our data would not lost.
