Prepare and boot ISO

  1. Download the file DAppNodeARM-x.x.xx.img.gz/zip from here.

  2. Unzip the file.

  3. Write the image into the microSD. To do that, there are different tools such as Raspberry Pi imager and Rufus(for windows). In this example we used Raspberry Pi imager.

  1. Insert the microSD into the Raspberry Pi.

  2. Connect the Raspberry Pi to a screen and a keyboard.

  3. Switch on the Raspberry Pi and wait for the startup process.

You will see this screen.

The default credentials are. User: dappnode Password: dappnodepi

Once you have logged in, you will see the next message: If you want to add any additional partition or disk, do it now. Run 'sudo dappnodepi-install' command to install DAppNode when ready. Connect your raspberry to the internet. Execute sudo dappnodedepi-install to finalize the dappnode installation.

Basic Set up

In case you have installed DAppNode in a raspberry using a sd card and you want to use a ssd hard disk you should to mount docker in this ssd. To do this follow the next steps:

  • Stop Docker service systemctl stop docker

  • Create a new mountpoint for docker data. As an example: mkdir /data

  • Add your partition on the new device to /etc/fstab. You can identify its UUID using the blkid tool. Make sure your device is properly partitioned first. Your line in /etc/fstab should look like this: UUID=b311b983-bda6-4e9f-835c-266d40d64f07 /data/ ext4 defaults 0 0

  • Mount your SSD drive mount /data

  • Move docker data to the mountpoint mv /var/lib/docker/* /data/

  • Edit Docker settings to use the alternative location. Edit /etc/docker/daemon.json as follows:

"data-root": "/data"
  • Restart docker

systemctl start docker
