QORTector Update Guide

This is a guide for updating the QORTector.

How To Update The Core

This will remove all the log files, download the newest version of the qortal.jar:

cd && cd qortal && rm qortal.jar && curl -L -O https://github.com/Qortal/qortal/releases/latest/download/qortal.jar && ./start.sh

How To Update The DB & Bootstrap

How To Update Core & Bootstrap In One Command

If you’d like, you can simply replace the core and db (to bootstrap) all in one command. A bootstrap is a download of a database that is updated every 12 hours so that you only have to sync the remaining blocks from the latest bootstrap creation. You will notice several 0-100% processes during the popup screen, then you will need to wait for it to finish synchronizing which will continue after the popup has closed::

 cd && cd qortal && rm qortal.jar && rm -R db && curl -L -O https://github.com/Qortal/qortal/releases/latest/download/qortal.jar && ./start.sh

How To Update The UI

To update the UI, open the UI. If there is an update available, you'll see a notification like the screenshot below:

Followed by the screenshot below, where you'll have the option to restart now or update upon closing the UI:

Port Forwarding

If you have admin access to your router, you should configure port forwarding for the QORTector. Refer to the Port Forwarding page on how to do so.

Adjusting json Settings For Low Bandwidth

For those who have low bandwidth internet service, you will want to reduce your peer settings in the json file. Simply change the minBlockchainPeers to 3, and the maxPeers to 16 as seen below (or just copy and paste the code below into your json file - replacing what is there currently):

{
"apiDocumentationEnabled": false,
"apiEnabled": true,
"apiRestricted": false,
"autoUpdateEnabled": true,
"minBlockchainPeers": 3,
"minOutboundPeers": 16,
"maxPeers": 16,
"listenPort": 12392,
"allowConnectionsWithOlderPeerVersions": false
}
