CONNECT TO THE VIRTUAL SERVER
We use Termius ( on Mac ) to connect to our remote Server. You can also use a freeware like Putty on Windows.
Enter the IP of your Server and press connect.
Enter your login credentials when asked for. Default username is root. Password can be found on VULTR.
When you connected successfully you will see a shell similar to this:
Now you have to download our automatic install script to your ubuntu machine.
First of all you got to use a wget command – just copy paste this in your shell:
The script will be fetched within a very short period of time.
Next command is giving the script permissions to be executed:
chmod 755 setup.sh
Final step already installs your Masternode:
This step is important depending on if you already installed a Masternode before, or not!
If its your first time you host a Masternode on the Ubuntu Server, please type y – if you installed a Masternode before and only want to add a new one you can choose n.
In the next step the script will ask you how many Masternodes you want to setup. In our Tutorial we will choose 1 but you can put up to 8 on a 5$ Server and up to 15 on a 10$ Server of VULTR.
In the next Step you can define an unique alias for each Masternode, its recommended to number those.
Now you got to enter the Port you choosed at your HOT Wallet again, in our Tutorial it was 8001. If you create multiple Masternodes on your HOT Wallet its recommended to choose Ports like 8001, 8002, 8003 and so on.
Enter a fitting RPC Port in the same structure. 9001, 9002, 9003 and so on for each node.
Now the most important step. You have to enter the Masternode genkey for each Node that you defined at your HOT Wallets masternode.conf file.
If all was setup correct the Server is starting up and u can close the remote shell afterwards.
