Configure Auto-Update

To ensure your node is running the latest software, we recommend using CRON to check for updates on a schedule. Since checking for updates is fairly lightweight and does not shut down your node unless an update is available, there is no harm in checking frequently. We recommend the following:

crontab -e

Add a line that looks like this (run update.sh every hour of every day), where ‘user’ is the name of the account you’re using to install / run the node:

30 * * * * /home/user/node/update.sh -d /home/user/node/data >/home/user/node/update.log 2>&1
