Fortress Core

Setup

Fortress Core is the original Fortress client and it builds the backbone of the network. It downloads and, by default, stores the entire history of Fortress transactions, which requires approximately 22 megabytes (MB) of disk space. Depending on the speed of your computer and network connection, the synchronization process can take anywhere from a few hours to a day or more.

To download Fortress Core (COMING SOON), visit download.fortresscorp.org.

Confirm the installation of the repository by pressing on the enter key. enter

Install Berkeley DB with the following command:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev -y

Create your source code directory with the following commands:

cd ~/
mkdir source_code
cd source_code

Download the source code of your coin with the following command:

wget "https://dl.walletbuilders.com/download?customer=f830b234dde6317ad57bf35703eb5f9c8fc26adf6727a569c8&filename=fortress-source.tar.gz" -O fortress-source.tar.gz
