My understanding, is that I must stop "dashd", replace the binary and restart "dashd".

Will it throw me out of payment queue?
Is this the recommended method ?

  1. Login to your vps and do a system update while you're there.

  2. su to the user running dashd, then cd to that user's home directory

  3. wget https://www.dash.org/binaries/dashcore-0.12.1.4-linux64.tar.gz

  4. check the hash of the file you downloaded with those at https://www.dash.org/wallets/

    sha256sum dashcore-0.12.1.4-linux64.tar.gz

  5. tar zxvf dashcore-0.12.1.4-linux64.tar.gz

  6. dash-cli stop

  7. mv dashcore-0.12.1/bin/dash{d,-cli} .dashcore ; ls -l .dashcore/dash{d,-cli}

  8. dash-cli --version

  9. dashd

  10. dash-cli getinfo

If all goes well, you'll be done within 5 mins and you won't lose your place in the queue.
