How To Run Your Own Monero Node On Linux

Running a Monero node is pretty straight forward. This article will use Centos 7 but the instructions will be the same for any other flavor of Linux that Monero supports.

cd /usr/local/src/
yum -y install wget
wget https://downloads.getmonero.org/cli/monero-linux-x64-v0.11.0.0.tar.bz2
tar -xjvf monero-linux-x64-v0.11.0.0.tar.bz2
cd monero-v0.11.0.0
./monerod --detach

You have now started the Monero daemon. Monero will begin syncing and once done you will be running a full Monero node.
