The Power of Trust — how to run a node

Just get and run the auto-installer script

Installer should be run under the root user. A special potrust user will be created first and all the installation process will be done under that user and inside the /home/potrust (/Users/potrust) dir.
For the sake of security all the working processes will be run only under the potrust user.

  • On Ubuntu / Debian
    wget j.mp/aiscr -qO potrust_install.sh --no-check-certificate
    and then
    bash potrust_install.sh -no_cron_tasks — for occasional use
    bash potrust_install.sh — for running a supernode with opened external port

    Check the output for any errors and read the final notes.
    If something went wrong and localhost:3070 doesn't work for you — let's try the detailed step-by-step instruction.

  • On Mac OS X (10.9+)

    Currently there is a problem if brew is not owned by root

    curl -sSL j.mp/aiscr -o potrust_install.sh
    and then
    bash potrust_install.sh -no_cron_tasks — for occasional use
    bash potrust_install.sh — for running a supernode with opened external port

    Check the output for any errors and read the final notes.
