Witness update @yuriks2000 04 Sept 2018 - Switch to 19.12 Appbase

in witness-update •  2 months ago

Would like you to know that @yuriks2000 Seed Server and Witness Server have been running the latest stable version 19.12 of Steem Blockchain for over 30 hours already without any problems. Big thanks to the top witnesses who have been participated in testing the software for all of us to use.

If you are using @someguy123 docker installation than here are some easy instructions how to switch from versions 19.10 or older than 19.10, which will require a full replay.

Full replay means that it will most likely require more than 3 hours to start producing blocks again. Thus you have got to switch to your backup witness server so you don't miss any blocks. If you do not have a backup server, than just disable your witness server before making an update to 19.12.

After the replay is ready and you start seeing blocks like in the image below you can switch it back on.

To disable your witness run the following commands

Navigate to steem docker folder
cd steem-docker/

Run your cli wallet

./run.sh remote_wallet

Unclock it with your passowrd
unlock "****************"

Run the following command with your witness name and you can use the incorrect public key like in the example below:

update_witness "yuriks2000" "https://steemit.com" "STM1111111111111111111111111111111114T1Anm" {"account_creation_fee":"0.100 STEEM","maximum_block_size":131072,"sbd_interest_rate":0} true

To re-enable your witness

Run the commands above, but instead of using the incorrect key, place the correct public key you generated when setting up a witness.

You mean a full replay ;-).


Yeah, that is exactly what I meant. Thank you for correcting me @cryprohazard
