Snapshots

To download archive snapshots, please use the following: https://github.com/binance-chain/bsc-snapshots

Install go

Download the Go programming language distribution archive, extracts it to the "/usr/local" directory, and then removes the downloaded archive, effectively installing Go version 1.22.4 on the system.

wget https://go.dev/dl/go1.22.4.linux-amd64.tar.gz && \
rm -rf /usr/local/go && \
tar -C /usr/local -xzf go1.22.4.linux-amd64.tar.gz && \
rm go1.22.4.linux-amd64.tar.gz

Please add the Go executable path to your system's PATH environment variable, and then test to ensure that Go is working correctly.

echo "export PATH="$PATH:/root/.foundry/bin:/usr/local/go/bin"" >> /root/.bashrc
source /root/.bashrc
go version #test

Build Erigon

Clone the Erigon repository from GitHub, including its submodules, changes the current directory to the Erigon directory, checks out the latest release tag, and then compile the project using the "make" build system.

mkdir -p /root/data/github
cd /root/data/github/
git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/node-real/bsc-erigon
cd erigon
git checkout <latest release tag>
make

Configure Erigon

Append a systemd service configuration for the Erigon BNB Mainnet Service to the "/etc/systemd/system/erigon.service" file, specifying its description, dependencies, and executable parameters for proper execution and monitoring.
