Guide To Mining Dogecoins In The Cloud

Recommended Posts

Currently DogeCoins are one of the most talked about and profitable coins to mine. They are very new so people are able to collect large quantities of them. Currently I switched all my DigitalOcean mining to these coins. This guide will show you how:
 
Step 1) Sign up for Digital Ocean (As of now it is not against DigitalOcean's terms of service of to mine. I also like them because they accept Paypal.)
 
Step 2) Once signed up you can fund your account
 
I would suggest funding $25 to the account considering we will be setting up 5 mining servers (droplets) on this account and $5 covers 1 month of computing for 1 server.
 
Step 3) Create your first droplet
  Step 3a) Set the hostname to whatever you like
  Step 3b) Select the $5 a month option
  Step 3c) Select "Debian 7.0 x64" which is Debian under the Linux Distributions tab
 
Once created, you will receive an email with the IP address, username, and password. Now we need a way to connect to the server.
 
Step 4) Download Putty and connect
 
I find this to be the easiest way to input the commands for the server.
Open putty and input the IP Address from the email into the Host Name field and select open.
 
Step 5) Input the commands to setup your server
The first droplet you create will be the most work. This is where you need to set up a working server with the following code. After it is created you will be able to copy and use it for your other 4 droplets. 

The first step is to login. Just enter the username from the email (most likely root). Then copy the password from the email and right click on the putty terminal and hit enter. Right clicking is how you paste in the putty terminal. Now you're ready to enter the following code. 
*Note that you need to change the USER.WORKERNAME to your pools user and worker name before entering it.
**Note you also need to choose a pool to use. I would suggest http://fast-pool.com which has a 0% fee and automatic payouts. However, due to the massive traffic, fast-pool is having some issues. If you want to use another pool you can just replace the information below.
You can find a list of pools here: http://dogepool.com/
 
Now just enter in the following code 1 line at a time:
 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/cpuminer/files/pooler-cpuminer-2.3.2.tar.gz
tar -xzf pooler-cpuminer-2.3.2.tar.gz
cd cpuminer-2.3.2
./configure CFLAGS="-O3"
make
apt-get install supervisor
mkdir -p /var/log/supervisor
touch /etc/supervisor/conf.d/dogecoin.conf
nano /etc/supervisor/conf.d/dogecoin.conf

 

[Note for the following block you can copy it all in at once. Once copied you hold Control+x, then hit 'y' and then "Enter"]

[program:dogecoin]
command=/root/cpuminer-2.3.2/minerd --url stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3333 --userpass USER.WORKNAME:PASSWORD
stdout_logfile=/var/log/supervisor/%(program_name)s.log
stderr_logfile=/var/log/supervisor/%(program_name)s.log
autorestart=true
/etc/init.d/supervisor stop
/etc/init.d/supervisor start
tail -f /var/log/supervisor/dogecoin.log

You should now be good to go! Your server is running!

 

Step 6) Create 4 more droplets to maximize your speed.
First you need to power off your first droplet and make a snapshot of it. One you have a snapshot you can create a new droplet with the image of the first droplet under Image.
 
Congrats! Your done! Currently I am getting around 6kh/s per droplet.

Hello

 

When starting the server on line

/etc/init.d/supervisor start

 

The following error

It seems like you might of put in a line break or an extra space in the config file. Use this command to reopen dogcoin.conf:

nano /etc/supervisor/conf.d/dogecoin.conf

Try re-entering the following by copy and pasting the whole block (remember that the line beginning with "command...." ending in "...PassNotNeeded" is one whole line.

[program:dogecoin]
command=/root/cpuminer-2.3.2/minerd --url stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:9555 --userpass XXX_WALLET_ADDRESS_HERE_XXX:PassNotNeeded
stdout_logfile=/var/log/supervisor/%(program_name)s.log
stderr_logfile=/var/log/supervisor/%(program_name)s.log
autorestart=true

Then stop and start supervisor again:

/etc/init.d/supervisor stop
/etc/init.d/supervisor start

Hopefully that fixes it.

 

 

I have completed all the steps.

How do I see if everything is up and running?

 

Thanks for helping us out!

Sincerely,

 

The following command will show you the activity of your miner:

tail -f /var/log/supervisor/dogecoin.log

Bonus tip: Free $10 coupon works at digital ocean as you put in your billing info:
Coupon: GIT10

 

If you would care to return this favor, sign up to digitalocean with my referral link so I can get $10 too!: https://www.digitalocean.com/?refcode=dff47386eb48

Additionally, If you use my Ref link, send me a message with your email address once you've added money to your account and I can send you a copy of my snapshot, so you don't need to worry about the code setup. Just turn it on and you're mining.

I am looking for someone help me to configure my digitalocean server.

I cannot make a copy/paste....why? Is it because I have an azerty keyboard?

 

Please help me ;)

 

You should be able to at least highlight the line of text you want copied and then right click in putty to paste it.

In this log you will find the following information:

2013-12-28 17:36:13,700 INFO gave up: dogecoin entered FATAL state, too many start retries too quickly

 

Can someone please help me with setting up? 

I followed all the steps but cannot get it to work.
