    This guide is now out of date please refer to :


    Greetings everyone,

    to increase the number of Feathercoin p2pool nodes i will publish my script for setting up the feathercoin daemon and the p2pool software on Debian based distributions (Debian, Ubuntu). The script will install the required packages, download and install feathercoin and p2pool daemons and also a recent backup of the blockchain.

    This will get your p2pool node up and running in a matter of minutes. I have tested the script on Debian 7.2, Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 13.10. Please let me know if you see any issues or would like other distributions supported. May have a look at CentOS, if demand is there. Here you go:

    Script to install feathercoin daemon and a p2pool daemon on a debian
    based linux system. The script will

    • install the required software packages
    • retrieve the feathercoin and p2pool daemon via git
    • compile the feathercoin daemon
    • download a blockchain backup that is only some days old and
      install it for the feathercoin daemon
    • configure daemontools to ensure that feathercoin and p2pool daemons
      are running continuously
    • start feathercoin and p2pool daemon

    Tested / Supported Debian based distributions:

    • Debian 7.2
    • Ubuntu 12.04
    • Ubuntu 13.10

    Scripts are now updated for Feathercoin daemon v0.8.5 and also include a recent blockchain for that version. Enjoy!

    **** I Now think this is to do with my service provider as when installed in virtualbox and not on my VPS it works perfectly. ****

    The script installed fine on new install but I am getting a weird issue.

    Any Ideas? Connection refused by other side

    From p2pool? Constantly or only once? If it’s only once that should not be an issue. Could you post more lines of the log file?
