in #witnesslast year


Create a folder

# mkdir -p /data/ah/data/

Create a startup shell named /data/ah/


docker run -itd \
--name ah \
-p 8091:8091 \
-v /data/ah/data:/var/steem \
steemit/steem:0.23.x-mira-ah \
/usr/local/steemd/bin/steemd --data-dir /var/steem

Download config.ini

# wget -O /data/ah/data/config.ini

Download and uncompress data

Visit and download backup data which name likes steem_ah_xxx.tar.lz4.

# tar --use-compress-program=lz4 -xf steem_ah_xxx.tar.lz4 -C /data/ah/data

Start up

When everything is done, execute this command /data/ah/ to start up.

Create stop shell named /data/ah/


docker network disconnect bridge ah
docker stop -t 600 ah
docker rm ah

If you want to stop container, execute this command /data/ah/

Watch container log

# docker logs -f --tail 100 ah

Hello ety001,
I was going to set up the ahnode today. Unfortunately, I had to cancel the unpacking because the disk space was insufficient.
I already tried downloading and unzipping as a stream, but there is not enough space for that either.
I have about 730 GB of free space. How much space does the ahnode currently need?

Hi, it's about 787G.

787G    ./data
787G    .
