Configure

Setting your own config preferences

It is a bit different if:

… to run the node.

Remember: You need to restart the node if you’ve changed any configuration option

Using Ubuntu, Azure, AWS or Docker

Your node’s config file is in /etc/rsk. Default configurations are defined there and they are the same as these ones.

You should edit the config related with the network you are using (mainnet.conf, testnet.conf, regtest.conf). Check here all the configuration options you could change.

Using java command

1. Create a .conf file

You can create a file with the configuration options that you want to replace from the default. Default configurations are defined here.

The extension of the file must be .conf. Check here for all the configuration option.

As an example, if you want to change the default database directory, your config file should only contain:

database {
    dir = /new/path/for/database
    reset = false
}

2. Specify your config file path

To apply your configuration options, you need to set your own config file’s path when you run your node.

This can be done in two ways:

  • Running the node with de java command, add -Drsk.conf.file=path/to/your/file.conf
  • Compiling the node with IntelliJ, add to VM options: -Drsk.conf.file=path/to/your/file.conf
