Setting up a Metiscoin Pool Miner on VPS for Absolute Noobs
Donations welcome!

MTS: MEu8jBkkVvTLwvpiPjWC9YntyDH2u5KwVy


Before You Begin
  • Download PuTTY (putty.exe) so you can connect to your VPS when the time comes.
  • Sign up for a DigitalOcean or Linode account.
    • During the creation process, be sure to create a node running Ubuntu 13.04 x64 (not x86)
    • Pick whichever hardware configuration you like (number of CPUs, RAM, etc)
  • If you signed up for DigitalOcean, check your email for your root password.  If you signed up for Linode, your password will be what you specified.
  • Run PuTTY and paste the node's IP address into the "Host Name" slot, then hit "Open" at the bottom. (figure 1)
  • PuTTY will ask you to confirm the SSH key, press Yes (it will only ask once) (figure 2)
  • Type or paste your password into PuTTY and press enter.  To paste, simply right click.
    • Note: You will not see the password characters!  This is normal.

Getting Down to Business
  • If you chose DigitalOcean, it's time to change the root password!  Type passwd, press enter, then enter a new password.  Just like before, the password characters will not show up. (figure 3)
  • Copy this automated setup script to notepad. (highlighted version)
  • At the top of the script, there are fields starting with "YPOOL_".  Fill these out with your desired info.  Be sure to keep the quotes!
    • YPOOL_WORKER is your yPool worker name. YPOOL_WORKERPASS is your yPool worker password.
  • Copy the entire modified script from notepad and paste it into your PuTTY window (right click), then hit enter.
  • The setup is now running.  It will take approximately 3 minutes to complete.
  • Once the script completes, you will see a brief help message and list of commands. (figure 4)

Congratulations!  You're now mining for metiscoins!
If you'd like to maximize your mining potential, please see my mini-guide on How to Clone DigitalOcean Droplets.

Changelog
  • 24 January, 2014 - Miner code updated.  Now with 20% more turbo!  Run ~/stop-miner; ~/build-metiscoin-from-git to download the latest version.
  • 22 January, 2014 - Fixed apt-get list, number of threads determined by /proc/cpuinfo.
  • 22 January, 2014 - Initial release.


Notes
The images in this guide are from my other primecoin guide and are slightly dated.  The images serve to illustrate, but shouldn't be taken as definitive.

Known Issues
There's a known bug with this miner where redirecting output to file may or may not not work!  Because of this, mining speeds may not appear when using ~/peek.
If you want to verify your miner is working, check the process listing for CPU usage or run the miner command manually.  Alternately, sometimes a reboot helps.
/usr/local/bin/xpt -o ypool.net -u user.worker -p x


If you have any questions or comments, feel free to speak up.

Anybody have luck getting the miner output log working?  On Digital Ocean it seems to be 50/50 on reboot but I haven't had it work on AWS yet.

Also, I'm revising the AWS c1.xlarge number to 650 kHash/s.  That's where it seemed to level out at.  Comes out to about 30 shares/hour on yPool.

Add a second VPS?  On Digital Ocean you just create a new Droplet and paste the script into it like you did the first time.  You'll use the same info that you did in the first.  (You can have multiple miners pointing to the same "worker" on yPool.)

TiberiuC - thanks for the data point.  It looks like multiple 2CPU's are more effective than one 8CPU.

Added to the benchmark.

How long did you let it run for?  I found that the speeds steadily crept upwards for about 15 minutes before leveling off.

For comparison, that averages out to about 3.8 shares/hour on yPool.

I've made updates to the metiscoin miner, so anybody using this script should run ~/stop-miner; ~/build-metiscoin-from-git to download the latest version.
It features a 20-25% hash rate improvement over the old algorithm.

Enjoy!

I'm not sure if it's a fluke or what, but the Amsterdam 2 servers seem to be ~15% faster than the New York 2 servers.

I wonder if it's congestion?
