Pollen Node GoShimmer Screenshot Tutorial (engl.)

  • Main tutorial: Create a IOTA GoShimmer Pollen Node

    Before to start:

    First you need an account (for example at Hetzner.com) and unfortunately you need to tell them some personal datas because of legal issues


    1. At "Cloud Console" you need to add a server

    (Please always make a doubleclick on the pictures inside of this tutorial to see everything):


    2. Choose a server and add an "SSH key" before ordering (How to setup this SSH key, please check the second tutorial in the comentar):


    3. Order the server (for me CX11 did work for a longer time, but lately I changed to CX21 because of performance issues (it's easy to delete the server and start it from scratch, so you can also just try out the cheapest one and change later. You only have to delete the server an creat a new one):


    4. Open PuTTY to get to the command line of your server (How exactly this works you can see in the side tutorial "Putty setup" in the second comment):


    5. Now you only have to insert the following line of code (details on https://github.com/demichele/install-goshimmer ) to create a Pollen Node

    (for "paste" you have to use the "right click" at your mouse inside the console):

    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/demichele/install-goshimmer/master/install.sh && chmod 0777 install.sh && ./install.sh

    6. After a while you have to write "y" to confirm to continue:


    That's all! Now you want to see your Dashboard I guess

    7. Copy the IP Adresse from your new Server:


    8: Paste the IP-Addresse in your Internetbrowser

    in the form "http://deine-Ip-Adresse:8081"

    => If Pollen is completely installed (does not need very long), you can already see the Dashboard. Now you only have to wait until the node is sync:


    9. Update: If you want to do an Update you node or it does not work, just insert the second line of code from the Demichelis Tutorial in your console:

    cd /opt/goshimmer && docker-compose down && rm db/* && docker-compose pull && docker-compose up -d
