First Steps

Step by step guide to the user the first time he accesses the DAppNode.

Log In

The first time you access the UI, you will be asked for signing up. You need a username and a password. The password has some requisites:

  • One cap character at least.
  • One number at least.
  • One special character at least.

After defining a username and a password, dappnode will give you a recovery token, in case you forget your password or username, this token can be used to recover them. SAVE IT!!!!

  1. The first thing you need to set up is the type of client you want to use. We recommend this set-up:
    • Full Node
    • Turn on the Use remote during syncing or errors
    • The client, we don't have a preference between geth, nethermind ...

  1. The next window are asking you about the System Auto Updates. If you turn on this option, your DAppNode will be updated automatically when it detects there is a new version enabled. 24 hours after DAppNode releases there is a new version, it will start the installation of the new version. From DAppNode we recommend to turn on this option.
