I’m sorry my guide was unable to meet your needs. It has, however, helped countless individuals with setting up their node, so someone is able to follow it! :) Do you have any specific critiques I could use to improve it?
Hello Tao,
I'm following your Tutorial right now - are you still working on that project?

Right now it's no problem to adapt your guide to 0.14.0.3 and hopefully also to MacOS-Dash-Wallet.

Do have any updated guide for 0.14.03 yet?

Great HowTo - I followed it and it worked very well.
But just one small obsticle:

The editor appears with the existing masternode configuration. Add or uncomment these lines in the file, replacing the key with your BLS private key generated above:

masternode=1
masternodeblsprivkey=24c1fa3c22c6ea6b1cc68a37be18acb51042b19465fe0a26301c8717bf939805
I used dashman and dash.conf said:

#masternode=1
#masternodeprivkey=...
Just to be aware it's not enough to uncomment the lines ... you have also insert "bls" in "masternodeprivkey" to make ist "masternodeblsprivkey"

Such a stupid mistake by me took me a while to find it.

Yes, unfortunately dashman has not been updated for some time. We are working on new install guides using Docker. Note that it does say "Add or uncomment ..."

You are so close....let's wrap it up on your VPS!

Run Joe again as root to give your personalized user sudo powers:
su - (to visit root ;) for the last time)
joe /etc/sudoers
In Joe's window, find the line that says the following:

root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL and make another line underneath it like this:
YOURUSERNAME ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

Hi...guys sorry for silly questions...

YOURUSERNAME is what username?
VPS username?
rpcuser=XXXXXXXXXXXXX (in dash.conf)
or?
