# Single Node RPC setup

This examples creates a single droplet in Digitalocean that:

  • runs the latest osmosisd binary
  • authomatically syncs the state from a pruned snapshot

# Usage

make apply
1
  1. Get ssh instructions:
terraform output --raw  ssh_help 
1

Expected output:

Get ssh key:
terraform output --raw private_key > droplet.key && chmod 600 droplet.key

Connect to the instancs:

ssh [email protected]<IP> -i droplet.key

The nodes are configured to accept traffic to port 22 from anywhere which is not generally recommended for production setup.

Please setup firewall rules according to your needs.

  1. Wait for the node to be initialized. The droplets is initialized via the osmosis-installer (opens new window) which installs the necessary packages and statesync the node. You can follow the process with:
tail -f /var/log/cloud-init-output.log
