Download the Blockchain from peerexplorer.com
« on: March 23, 2015, 06:57:14 pm »

A small guide how to get the Blockchain from HTTP Download as offered from Peerexplorer

1) Get Nxt. Download the zip from the latest Nxt Version: https://nxtforum.org/nrs-releases/

2) Unzip it. In the extraced folder, you will find a folder called "nxt".

3) Now, before you start Nxt, go to http://www.peerexplorer.com, browse to the bottom where you see a link "Download the Nxt blockchain".

4) Again, you will get a zip file, unzip it to find again a folder called "nxt" with another folder "nxt_db". Place the whole folder "nxt_db" into the (step 2) "nxt" folder.
(if there already is a nxt_db folder, delete it)

5) Run Nxt if you are on Windows run.bat or on linux run.sh

6) Open your favorite browser and guide it to: http://localhost:7876

That's it, maybe you are missing a day or some hours, which should be caught up within minutes.

5) Run Nxt if you are on Windows run.bat or on linux run.sh

Note: It may happen that the NRS used is not up to date with the blockchain. This did happen to me on OSX as the download file from nxt.org is still provide an old version of the NRS. In this case before step 5 the user should download the latest NRS from https://bitbucket.org/JeanLucPicard/nxt/downloads and replace the NRS from the OSX app package.

To do so once downloaded the app, right click on it, select show package contents, go into contents > resources and replace the nxt folder with the latest one downloaded from bitbucket. Then the app will start with no issue in reading the blockchain!

I think it is not need anymore with the new official client. You can now use the client while downloading the blockchain.

That is true! However, I've been off the blockchain for quite a while, and I still need to download ~286k blocks and somehow it won't progress. So is there another mirror to download the blockchain manually? Because that would save me heaps of time :D

1.9.2
According to peerexplorer.com, the blockchain must be around ~730mb in total. I've been downloading the chain for 1,5 days straight. My connection is not crappy :). And for some reason, after downloading a few hunderd blocks, it just adds a few hunderd more to the total count. So it must be bugged, since it would be theoretically impossible to ever download it like this :P

The blockchain download link hosted on Dropbox is again down for some days now:

Quote
Error (429)
This link is temporarily disabled. The person who shared it hit their daily limit of traffic or downloads. Learn about traffic limits.

Can this be fixed by maybe moving / adding another hosting service?
And besides would be nice if the link could be kept the same so that I can use it in my scripts  ;)

I run two archival nodes, I can create a copy of the blockchain and host it on my server or aws, However I am not sure how to i just keep the blockchain there are few other files in the folder.

I downloaded the whole blockchain and this morning when I opened the client I had this message on the top right
Warning: You are most likely on a fork (base target is very high).

What should I do?
Thanks

This message is usually a false alarm, but take a look in the client at the most recent blocks (Settings>Blocks, top right corner of client screen):



If what you see matches up to this, then we are on the same blockchain, and you are probably not on a fork.
