Install Script

Check out the Install Script to perform an all-in-one installation, configuration and startup of FIO Chain

The following setup is for a FIO API Node installation using pre-built packages.

These packages are purpose-built to quickly bring up a node, including systemd, logrotate, apparmor, and compsec integration, and have reasonable defaults in the config.

Latest Release

Get the latest release from the FIO Releases.

Download and validate install packages

Releases may be downloaded manually or pulled programmatically, i.e. using curl, by:

curl -sO https://github.com/fioprotocol/fio/releases/download/v3.4.0/fioprotocol-3.4.0-ubuntu-18.04-amd64.deb

Verify checksum:

md5sum fioprotocol-3.4.0-ubuntu-18.04-amd64.deb

Compare to the checksum generated above with the ones found on the Official Release page

e18d9c47f1211b03662269b2b4c6622a  fioprotocol-3.4.x-latest-ubuntu-18.04-amd64.deb

Remove existing history directories (optional):

This step should be performed only if you are upgrading from an older version, and you are NOT running a history node.

cd /var/lib
sudo rm -fr fio/data fio/history fio/history_index

Install the release

sudo apt install ./fioprotocol-3.4.x-latest-ubuntu-18.04-amd64.deb
rm fioprotocol-3.4.x-latest-ubuntu-18.04-amd64.deb

This will install the following files:

/etc/apparmor.d/usr.local.bin.fio-wallet
/etc/fio/nodeos/logging.json

Check for error

To Monitor AppArmor logging for issues

Inspect either the file 'kern.log' or 'messages' located in /var/log, i.e.:

tail -f /var/log/kern.log

To Disable an AppArmor profile

sudo ln -s /etc/apparmor.d/usr.local.bin.fio-nodeos /etc/apparmor.d/disable/
sudo apparmor_parser -R /etc/apparmor.d/usr.local.bin.fio-wallet

Re-enable an AppArmor profile

sudo rm /etc/apparmor.d/disable/usr.local.bin.fio-nodeos
sudo apparmor_parser -r /etc/apparmor.d/usr.local.bin.fio-nodeos

The default genesis file is for startup of a mainnet node. If running a testnet node, copy the testnet genesis configuration file into place:

sudo cp /etc/fio/nodeos/genesis-testnet.json /etc/fio/nodeos/genesis.json

Set-up nodeos configuration file

The default genesis file is for startup of a mainnet node. If running a testnet node, copy the testnet genesis configuration file into place:

sudo cp /etc/fio/nodeos/genesis-testnet.json /etc/fio/nodeos/genesis.json
