2.4. Use#

This section explains which commands are available to manage your node.

2.4.1. Quick start#

To create a new node, run the command below. A menu will be started that allows you to set up a node configuration file. For more details, check out the Configure section.

v6 node new

To run a node, execute the command below. The --attach flag will cause log output to be printed to the console.

v6 node start --name <your_node> --attach

Finally, a node can be stopped again with:

v6 node stop --name <your_node>


Before the node is started, it is attempted to obtain the server version. For a server of version x.y.z, a node of version x.y.<latest> is started - this is the latest available node version for the server version. If no server version can be obtained, the latest node of the same major version as the command-line interface installation is started.
