6 - Create Install Config File

This option allows the user to create an install configuration file that is used during the normal Flux Node install (option 2).

During Option 6 you will be asked all of the details about your Flux Node setup, including collateral details, watchdog information, upnp setup and more. Please have those details available before running option 6 to speed up the process.

When you are finished with Option 6 the script will create an installation config file that will be used during Node installation. This is extremely helpful for a couple of reasons.

  1. Allows you to simply run Option 2 and will not prompt for any information along the way. It will simply pull all of your details from the install config file to setup your node. Simply run Option 2 and go grab a coffee, the script will take care of the rest.

  2. If the you ever have to re-install the Flux Node for any reason you can simply run Option 2 right away and let the script take care of the rest. It won't prompt you for any additional details and will speed up the installation process.
