Install a Block Explorer for a Komodo Smart Chain
This repository simply modifies Decker's script from https://github.com/DeckerSU/komodo-explorers-install to work for a single Smart Chain
Setup Smart Chain
Either create a new Smart Chain or launch an existing one using its launch parameters. Then shutdown the daemon using the
./komodo-cli -ac_name=SMARTCHAINNAME stop
The above step creates the '.conf' file for the Smart Chain at
$HOME/.komodo/SMARTCHAINNAME/SMARTCHAINNAME.conf which will be modified and made use of by the explorer installation script.
Clone this repository in your home directory and navigate into it
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/gcharang/komodo-install-explorer cd komodo-install-explorer
Run the script: https://github.com/gcharang/komodo-install-explorer/blob/master/setup-explorer-directory.sh This script installs dependencies and prepares the directory for installing the explorer
It should create a subdirectory named
Now run the script: https://github.com/gcharang/komodo-install-explorer/blob/master/install-assetchain-explorer.sh with the Smart Chain's name as the argument
This will create a new sub directory named
SMARTCHAINNAME-explorer and a script named
It also adds data to a file called
SMARTCHAINNAME-webaccess with the Smart Chain's name and the url to access the explorer from the internet.
Start the Smart Chain with its launch parameters and execute the script
SMARTCHAINNAME-explorer-start.sh when you want to start the explorer
Note: Use the
noweb option like so:
./install-assetchain-explorer.sh SMARTCHAINNAME noweb to stop the script from prompting you to open the port for accessing the explorer through the internet; i.e., explorer will only be accessible on the local system
Note: When launching the Smart Chain for the first time after installing the explorer, add the
-reindex parameter to its launch parameters.
Adding another Smart Chain's explorer and running it at the same time
You can use the
./install-assetchain-explorer.sh SMARTCHAINNAME command to create explorers for as many Smart Chains as you want, just by changing the
You can also run them one at a time or all together at the same time depending on your needs.
The only problem is when the ports of two different Smart Chains conflict with each other.
In that case, if you wish to run them at the same time, modify the
install-assetchain-explorer.sh script to have fixed port values that are all distinct and different from the other Smart Chain's ports. Lets say the Smart Chain's name is
SMARTCHAINNAME1, then delete the sub directory named
SMARTCHAINNAME1-explorer and the script named
SMARTCHAINNAME1-explorer-start.sh and run the modified
install-assetchain-explorer.sh with its name again:
