This is a great simple guide already tested by myself, just follow the steps below

If you liked the guide please send some Dogecoins my way Smiley ===>>> D7JYSyY1ERhmqsrZ9taLcNxgfsAksNKD3z

**if you want i can set it up for you for only 1,000 Doges - msg me**

**VERSION 1 - P2POOL**

1. sign up for a digitalocean account here:  https://www.digitalocean.com/?refcode=261c189a4aeb

Deposit at least $5 and add coupon *LINUX13* or *GIT10* to get $10 extra bonus

2. create the smallest droplet 512 MB/1 CPU - choose Ubuntu 13.04 x64

3. login via ssh (use putty) with your vps login details

4. execute the following comands

make a swap file:

   sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=64M count=16
   sudo mkswap /swapfile
   sudo swapon /swapfile

install git:
        
        sudo apt-get update
   sudo apt-get install git

clone cpu miner:

   git clone https://github.com/pooler/cpuminer.git    

compile the source code:

   sudo apt-get install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev automake make

   cd cpuminer

   #Basic *nix build instructions:
   ./autogen.sh   # only needed if building from git repo (which we are)
   CFLAGS="-O3 -Wall -msse2" ./configure
   make

        apt-get install screen

        screen

   ./minerd --url http://whatever.poolyouwant.com:Port/ --userpass USERNAME:password

(for example: Dogecoin pool http:// pool.hostv.pl:9555 --userpass Dogecoinwalletaddress:password     or   http:// doge.crypto49er.com:9555)

       when logging back again use "screen -r" to restore session

That's all!

Digital Ocean is a great hosting solution, really. I like it for their quick setup, SSD and low prices.

But mining on 5$ DO VPS will give you about 2kh/s per core. And it's such difficult already to mine doges.

Better join a pool.

And for those who found my small advice valuable and saved some money:

go to server usa 2 and you will get 6 khash/s.

create 5 instances in total you will reach around 35 khash totally

now join a pool. you will get around 2,500 coins daily, this method is currently used by myself

mining scrypt with CPU cloud host is totally useless..  you will make around 80 doggies per hour on a pool, how you want to get back the $5 monthly investment with such a low reward?

mining cpu coins with that is much more profitable..

yes, you can mine with both from pools. better choose version 2 - works with any pool type. make sure you also choose server usa2- has better speeds

you will make around 2,500 coins daily with 5 instances. the value of dogecoin is rising, small risk while keeping your pc turned off.

i see 10,000 coins are now sold for $8-$10-->> so you already have $5 profit after just 4 days of mining

when you're mining with your home computer you're consuming a lot of electricity... on vps electricity is zero.

if $5 is a big investment then better not start at all...

yes, but use the "screen" command before running "minerd"

when logging back again use command "screen -r" to restore your session

it looks you have 2 running in background ... keep only one

use "screen -X -S {session # you want to kill} kill"

I can't get the final line to work... I type:

I'm using dogehouse pool and type ./cgminer --scrypt  -o stratum+tcp://dogehouse.org:3333 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password (filling in worker & pass) and get errors such as:

bash: ./cgminer: No such file or directory

when I try to use the OP and just start with the .minerd command I get:

./minerd: unrecognized option '--scrypt'
Try `minerd --help' for more information.

any thoughts?
