PPA - the fastest way to install NXT on Ubuntu
« on: September 14, 2016, 09:37:14 am »

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:nxtcrypto/nxt
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nxt nxt-bootstrap-blockchain

On a VPS the process took 1m45s from start to end, but that's mainly because it has a fast internet connection.
If you're on a different distribution, here is the blockchain bootstrap.

wow, good stuff. And how it will be with the updates? I mean sometimes "lib" folder needs to be deleted, before update NRS client manually.

The only thing that transitions between versions are the blockchain database and a config file. All other files are replaced during an upgrade.
