Steps to Install and Run a Transaction Processing Node

  1. Download the Full Node installer for your operating system.
  2. Unzip files in a location where the node can write its databases. The unzipped will work "from the box" without installing anything else.

  3. Get to a command prompt.

  4. Start the node by executing ./witness_node

  5. If the node fails to load the object databases, try to start the node with either "./witness_node --replay-blockchain" or "./witness_node --resync-blockchain" parameter.

Node configuration options are available in "witness_node_data_dir/config.ini".
To connect to specific nodes in the network, change "seed-node" and "seed-nodes" options.
