I spent many hours trying to get the latest version running properly so I decided to share the commands that I used here. You should have ssh root access to a fresh Ubuntu 18.04 installation before using this guide. I personally used a vultr server (referral link). There is probably a simpler way to perform some of these steps. Please post in the comments. 1) Update your server Code: apt-get update apt-get upgrade 2) Install some tools and dependencies Code: apt-get install nodejs apt-get install npm apt-get install build-essential apt-get install libzmq3-dev 3) Download Dash-core Code: cd /root wget https://github.com/dashpay/dash/releases/download/v0.12.3.2/dashcore-0.12.3.2-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz tar -xvzf dashcore-0.12.3.2-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz rm dashcore-0.12.3.2-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz 4) Install https://github.com/dashevo/dashcore-node Code: git clone https://github.com/dashevo/dashcore-node cd dashcore-node npm install npm link . 5) Create a configuration for your node Code: cd /root dashcore-node create mynode The last command will cause an error because @dashevo/[email protected]^4.0.0 can't be found in the npm repositories. We will manually fix the errror in the next step. 6) Fix the error Code: cd mynode nano package.json Now change Code: "@dashevo/dashcore-node": "^4.0.0" to Code: "@dashevo/dashcore-node": "file:../dashcore-node" Now save the changes (Ctrl+x) and run Code: npm install 7) Install insight-api service Code: dashcore-node install @dashevo/insight-api 8) Change datadir and exec Code: nano dashcore-node.json Change the value of "datadir" to "/root/.dashcore" Change the value of "exec" to "/root/dashcore-0.12.3/bin/dashd" 9) Run it Code: dashcore-node start For me it started synchronizing in 5-10 minutes and finished in 1-2 hours.
