    Hey guys!
    You helped me a lot setting up my node on a linux server. I’m very unexperienced with the command line stuff but managed it with your help. Thanks for that!
    Now I want to update my node to the latest version and I’m stuck again. Is there a tutorial out there on how to update a node?

    Thanks!

    I think we need the help of @cryptosolar! πŸ™‚
    He wrote that beautiful procedure in here!

    @cryptosolar not not around, so I’ll give it a shot! πŸ™‚
    I would do the following:
    1 – stop the running ardor client
    2 – move your ardor folder to another location: “mv ardor ardor_old”
    (the next 3 steps I’m getting from https://ardor.rocks/groups/how-to/forum/topic/how-to-install-ardor-on-linux-ubuntu/)
    3 – git clone https://bitbucket.org/Jelurida/ardor.git
    4 – cd ardor
    5 – ./compile.sh
    Copy your configuration file and database from the older version folder:
    6 – cp ardor_old/nxt.proprties ardor
    7 – cp -r ardor_old/nxt_db ardor

    Then start the client with: ./run.sh

    Let me know if this works for you!

    OK, now I got it. I think I got lost somewhere… But I erased my server and started again from the beginning. No it’s running πŸ™‚

      I think you can use the same procedure I posted above:

      I would do the following:
      1 – stop the running ardor client
      2 – move your ardor folder to another location: β€œmv ardor ardor_old”
      (the next 3 steps I’m getting from https://ardor.rocks/groups/how-to/forum/topic/how-to-install-ardor-on-linux-ubuntu/)
      3 – git clone https://bitbucket.org/Jelurida/ardor.git
      4 – cd ardor
      5 – ./compile.sh
      Copy your configuration file and database from the older version folder:
      6 – cp ardor_old/nxt.proprties ardor
      7 – cp -r ardor_old/nxt_db ardor

      Then start the client with: ./run.sh

      Let me know if this works for you!

      Basically you move the old ardor installation folder to a different one, in this case “ardor_old”, then you install the new version in the “ardor” folder and you move the reusable stuff from the old to the new folder. In this case the database folder “nxt_db” and the configuration file “nxt.properties”

      Hope this helps! πŸ™‚
