HOWTO Run Sia host on headless Linux server (Ubuntu)
Hello @brisk thanks for your thoughts,
can you explain how an attacker, which overtook a local (non root) user, could read the echo from your suggested command line?
Would it make a difference wheather script is executed by root or a non-root user?
Could not announce host: insufficient balance
when trying to annouce ?
Me and a few others who read the Github Gist and this (https://gist.github.com/pmknutsen/7521a29fe8125c24eb3e/) are getting this error:
Starting the service fails with status=203/EXEC
@chanakyabtc Only thing I can think of is that its a permissions issue. Check that the user you're running
siadas has permissions to run
siadand read/write permissions to the data directory (
Awesome tutorial, thanks for making this!
I ended up using this for setting up sia.pixeldrain.com.
I modified the service file slightly, to fit my requirements better:
Description=Sia Daemon After=network.target [Service] Type=simple ExecStart=/home/sia/Sia/siad -M gctwr ExecStop=/home/sia/Sia/siac stop WorkingDirectory=/home/sia/Sia/ Restart=always RestartSec=10 User=sia Nice=2 [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target Alias=siad.service
nicevalue is so it doesn't end up eating all resources of the pixeldrain server. It also causes
siadto get eaten first if the server happens to run OOM.
This also contains a clean shutdown sequence for Sia, to reduce risks of data corruption when the server needs to reboot.
type=simpleline indicates that this is not a forking service, and that it should be started in a new process.
And I added
After=network.targetto make sure it doesn't start before the network driver is initialized.
I learned a lot about systemd from this, thanks for that :)

I'm having problems installing Sia via the linux command line. I've never used go before I think that's where my major breakdown comes in.
Does anyone have an install guide where they use go? Everything I'm finding is back before V1.1 and nothing I can find is helping me install with go.
@brollySSJ you don't need go, just install the compiled version from Github. The above guide still works with little modifications.
