Upgrading your node

We have a new upgrade script you will be pleased to know! To upgrade your node, login as root and once logged in run the following code.

cd ~
rm -rf upgrade.sh
wget -O upgrade.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Geordie-R/coti-node-upgrade/main/upgrade.sh && chmod +x upgrade.sh

You will be asked a series of questions once you run the code above.

  • You will be asked if you are upgrading a node on the testnet or mainnet. Type number 1 for the mainnet or 2 for the testnet then press enter.

  • You will be asked for your ubuntu username the node is installed under. Leave it empty and press enter if you used "coti" originally.

  • You will be asked what version of the node software you would like to install. Type the number if you know it in this format: 3.1.0 then press enter. If you leave it empty it will use the latest version. Please note if a brand new release has just been released i may not have had time to update the latest version in the script so just type it in manually if you are upgrading to a brand new release.

If all goes well you should see UPGRADE COMPLETE! in giant letters!
