This guide will show you step by step how to mine moneros on a free ubuntu server.
Step 1: Get yourself a Ubuntu 16.04 server here: https://aws.amazon.com/free
Watch the video below to find out how to set it up.
Step 2: Download Cyberduck
Step 3: Connect to the Ubuntu server through Cyberduck (username: ubuntu).
This video will help you to get started.
Step 4: When you are logged in to the server through cyberduck go to the top cyberduck menu. Click “Go” & “Open in Terminal”. Now it should open your terminal/command prompt and you should be something like: ubuntu@ec2-…#. Now type in: sudo su and hit enter.
Notice: Make sure that the .pem key file is on maximum security. Right click on the .pem file and check the information of the file – change the read/write rights so only you can read/write and everybody else has no rights to read/write etc. at all !
Step 5: Now you should be at root@ip-…: home/ubuntu#
Step 6: Type in the following line by line, press enter after each line and wait until you are at root@ip-…: home/ubuntu# again. At some point in the installation process you will be asked to type in Y for yes and hit enter.
sudo apt-get install git libcurl4-openssl-dev build-essential libjansson-dev autotools-dev automake git clone https://github.com/hyc/cpuminer-multi apt-get update apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev git apt-get install build-essential apt-get install autotools-dev autoconf apt-get install libcurl3 libcurl4-gnutls-dev sudo apt-get update && wget https://minergate.com/download/deb-cli -O minergate-cli.deb && sudo dpkg -i minergate-cli.deb cd cpuminer-multi ./autogen.sh CFLAGS="-march=native" ./configure make
Step 7: Register a free account here: Mining Pool (Needs a new account to work!)
Step 8: Once you have registered with the mining pool return to your server terminal again (root@ip-…:home/ubuntu/cpuminer-multi#) and use this line to start your monero mining. Remember to replace “YOUR MINING POOL EMAIL-ADDRESS” &”YOUR MINING POOL PASSWORD” with your mining pool email address or else it wont work. Once you have pressed enter you will seh the miner start to work. it will take some time before the hash rate raises. There is other free cloudserver offers on the web…
./minerd -a cryptonight -o stratum+tcp://xmr.pool.minergate.com:45560 -u YOUR MINING POOL EMAIL-ADDRESS -p YOUR MINING POOL PASSWORD -t 4
If you want the miner to run 24/7 without your terminal/console being online use this code:
nohup ./minerd -a cryptonight -o stratum+tcp://xmr.pool.minergate.com:45560 -u YOUR MINING POOL EMAIL-ADDRESS -p YOUR MINING POOL PASSWORD -t 4
Notice: It might take some time (up to 20 minutes) before the mining pool shows your hash rate & balance. Dont worry it will all be there.
