Note: for CrownCloud OpenVZ VPS-2048 or VPS-4096 running Ubuntu 14.04 64bit
https://crowncloud.net/openvz.php

Use Putty to SSH into your new VPS. (You'll need the IP address from CrownCloud, thats like the street address of your VPS) Log in as root and use the password you received in your confirmation email from CrownCloud.

step 1

First, make a new account, to run the litedoge wallet on later, for better security;

adduser your-non-root-username

{Answer the questions, other than the password - REMEMBER THAT! - the rest is ignorable.}

step 2

Run locale command in shell

locale-gen en_US.UTF-8
{This sets up your Locale to regenerate the locales used on the vps to standard UTF-8 character encoding.}

step 3

Then update your Linux install so it's up to date with the packages you'll use

apt-get install nano build-essential libssl-dev libdb++-dev libboost-all-dev libminiupnpc-dev git
git clone https://bitbucket.org/ctgiant/litedoge.git
cd litedoge/src
apt-get update
make -f makefile.unix
apt-get update
cp litedoged /bin
litedoged (will error but needed to create files)
cd ~
cd .litedoge
nano litedoge.conf

step 4

Add these lines into litedoge.conf

server=1
daemon=1
listen=1
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=somethinglongyoudonthavetoremember
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
txindex=1
stake=1

(use control +x then Y to save it)

step 5

We need to tell the user here the heck they get their privkey, below here? They WON'T KNOW! And tell them to make up a password, too

apt-get install nano build-essential libssl-dev libdb++-dev libboost-all-dev libminiupnpc-dev git
git clone https://bitbucket.org/ctgiant/litedoge.git
cd litedoge/src
apt-get update
make -f makefile.unix
apt-get update
cp litedoged /bin
litedoged (will error but needed to create files)
cd ~
cd .litedoge
nano litedoge.conf

step 6

For best security you don't want to stake on your root account; so do

litedoged stop
logout

step 7

Reconnect, and log in to your-non-root-username staking only account, then start the daemon with

litedoged

step 8

Unlock for Staking Only: (Note the space in front of this line; this tells your putty client NOT to cache this line, so someone with physical access to your PC cannot scroll back for your password!)

 litedoged walletpassphrase yourpassword 99999999 true

Confirm you are staking, {How, exactly, will they know?} and close Putty.

step 9
