First enter the following line which will open the text file edit:

nano /etc/supervisor/conf.d/primecoin.conf

 

Then enter your code (replacing the pooluser with your wallet address): 

 

[program:primecoin]

command=/root/primecoin/src/primeminer -pooluser=XXX_PRIMECOIN_ADDRESS_HERE_XXX -poolip=54.200.248.75 -poolport=1337 -genproclimit=1 -poolpassword=x
stdout_logfile
=/var/log/supervisor/%(program_name)s.log
stderr_logfile
=/var/log/supervisor/%(program_name)s.log
autorestart
=true

 

This is right way

How can I solve this problem?
 
root@xpm:~# /etc/init.d/supervisor start
Starting supervisor: Error: Another program is already listening on a port that one of our HTTP servers is configured to use.  Shut this program down first before starting supervisord.

To check your pool stats directly go here:

http://beeeeer.org/user/WALLET_ADDRESS_HERE

 

To see additional statistics you from the beeeeer.org pool you can go here:

http://xpm.syware.de/?a=WALLET_ADDRESS_HERE

 

Payouts are made when your total reaches 3.01 XPM.

ANY chance of you posting something like this for mining protoshares?  I was thinking of starting to mine that on the beeeeeer sub pool.

From what you posted I would re-enter the following code:

apt-get install supervisor
mkdir -p /var/log/supervisor
touch /etc/supervisor/conf.d/primecoin.conf
nano /etc/supervisor/conf.d/primecoin.conf
[program:primecoin]
command=/root/primecoin/src/primeminer -pooluser=XXX_PRIMECOIN_ADDRESS_HERE_XXX -poolip=54.200.248.75 -poolport=1337 -genproclimit=1 -poolpassword=x
stdout_logfile=/var/log/supervisor/%(program_name)s.log
stderr_logfile=/var/log/supervisor/%(program_name)s.log
autorestart=true
/etc/init.d/supervisor start

Try inputting those again and then calling:

tail -f /var/log/supervisor/primecoin.log

That should fix it. If it doesn't I would suggest trying again from scratch inputting one line of code at a time. It should work then.

 

This seemed to help some but then I get this:

 

Starting supervisor: Error: File contains no section headers.
file: /etc/supervisor/conf.d/primecoin.conf, line: 1
'xx\n'
For help, use /usr/bin/supervisord -h
 
Now it took me a few times to properly paste into putty since I'm new to it but got the hang eventually... could be I entered some X's that got saved.... is there a clean way to drop the conf file and redo those steps?

Okay I got passed that last hurdle but now when I try and start the supervisor it says "Error: Another program is already listening on a port that one of our HTTP Servers is configured to use.  Shut this program down first before starting supervisord" which I take to mean that its already running but then the tail says there is no primecoin.log file so then I figure that supervisor started without the config done so I go to stop the supervisor WHICH seems to do something (says "Stopping Supervisor" or what not).... but when I go to start the supervisor again I keep getting the same error about another program....  PLEASE HELP! I'm so close!... would be happy to give pay for a fiverr job or send 5 bucks to a paypal address if you could help me resolve???

Okay.... I know this is my third post on this thread but I just wanted to pass on that I got it to work.  Ultimately rebooting is what did the trick for me.  I have 5 nodes up and running and can't believe how awesome this is!  Thank you so much for showing us this now I can finally turn off my lame laptop workers that were probably going to break my laptop anyway.

 

That said in Digital Ocean I noticed that the CPU usage is pretty low (around 60%) and am wondering if there is a way to tweek this to get more out of it.  Any thoughts? Now that its rolling part of me doesn't want to touch it.  I currently am seeing between 5 - 7 chains/d on most nodes which is a great start so thanks again!

One more dumb question: can I use the same payout address for all 5? Does it treat them like different workers or does it confuse beeeeer?

You can use the same address for all 5. It dumps all your earnings to that address.

The way Digital Ocean works is that you put money in your account to fund it. They charge you hourly based on the droplets you choose to use. The hourly fee and the monthly fees are the same based on a 30 day cycle. So a droplet that costs $5 a month will cost $0.007 an hour.

Lets just say you put $10 in your account. You can start up 5 droplets and they each would be charging you $0.007 an hour as you use it. After about 12 days your balance should be at 0. 

 

Its up to you then to keep adding funds to your account to keep your droplets going. Also, make sure to destroy droplets if you no longer need to use them. Any droplet that exists will be charging you hourly.

I talked to their support team about raising the droplet limit, and they refused. The only way is either to disguise your miners into something else (at least do not call droplets Miner1, Miner2 etc), or to register several accounts. The good news is that mining is allowed :)

Here is the support team reply: 

Cryptocurrency mining is very CPU intensive, and due to the shared nature of our CPU allocations large-scale cryptocurrency mining will seriously affect the quality of service we can provide to the neighbouring servers on the same hypervisors as servers running cryptocurrency mining operations.

So, while we do not specifically prohibit cryptocurrency mining, we do restrict accounts doing so to prevent large-scale operations from affecting our infrastructure.

Therefore, at this time, we do not provide droplet limit increases to accounts currently engaging in this activity. This includes opening additional accounts for the purpose of mining.

We apologize for this inconvenience, but we have to do our best to provide fair usage for all our users.

Regards, 
Support Team 
DigitalOcean
