$ ssh root@ip-addr-here

update machine

# su -c 'yum update' -y
# su -c '/sbin/chkconfig --level 345 yum on; /sbin/service yum start'

Zcoin binaries

# wget
# tar -xvzf zcoin-
# cd zcoin-0.13.6/bin/
# sudo cp -f zcoind /usr/bin/zcoind
# sudo cp -f zcoin-cli /usr/bin/zcoin-cli
# sudo fallocate -l 4G /swapfile
# sudo chmod 600 /swapfile
# sudo mkswap /swapfile# sudo swapon /swapfile
