Again thank you for the support. It was very helpful. What part of Africa are you in? I spent a few years in The Cote D'Ivoire in West Africa. I have learned much about Ubuntu this week. I have completed setting up the server side with the .conf file and the IPTABLES file as per the guide. I am having similar issues as others have posted with the error "you must set masternode=1 in the configuration" when I attempt to start masternode on local pc. I have verified that my darkcoin.conf file does not have the .txt extention as well and that masternode=1. I have changed it to masternode=0 restarted darkcoin-qt then exited and changed back to masternode=1. I have tried copying it to the USSER/Appdata/Roaming/Darkcoin folder as well. I have deleted everything in that folder except the wallet and reran the darkcoin-qt.exe and resynced. I am entering the walletpassphrase command each time first and including my password after the Masternode start command. I am using version .10.11.5. I created a new wallet and sent 1000 DRK to its 0 address and regenerated the masternode gen key and updated the .conf files on both local and Vultr. I don't understand the -dir command to try that but I have tried everything i can find and no luck getting the custom .conf to load properly. Hacking video game systems has been easier than this. I enjoy the challenge but am at a wall. any idea or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks againDarkuopm Regarding your questions...
Default text editor that is present on every unix system is "vi". But it is a bit tricky to use (try googling "vi commands" or "vi guide")....
Alternatively you can install JOE, which is nicer, simpler editor.
A a root user (su -) run: apt-get install joe
Once installed, I would also suggest you edit the file /etc/sudoers:
run: joe /etc/sudoers
find the line:
root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
underneath add a new line:
jack ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
(substitute jack with your username)
press "ctrl+k" and then "x" - joe command for save file and exit.
BTW - as copy paste in linux terminal (ctrl+c and ctrl+v) do not work, you should use:
COPY is ctrl+insert
PASTE is shift+insert
now you can run administrative commands from your own local username, if you use the command sudo. for example:
sudo apt-get update
so, now you should be able to create a .darkcoin/darkcoin.conf file
(do a "ls -al" for list of all files and directories in current directory... and if directory ".darkcoin" does not exist, first create it with "mkdir .darkcoin") ...
hope this gets you started...
**UPDATE** After hours and multiple attempts I finally figured out the problem. notepad prompted me to change the encoding to Unicode instead of ANSI. As I am so new to programming I did that. I re-saved the local .conf file encoded with ANSI and I am now going to try and finish the setup.
