Introduction

  • Step 1: Install Docker on your VPS. Connect to your VPS via SSH and install Docker using the appropriate commands for your operating system.

  • Step 2: Install Docker Compose. This tool will help you manage multi-container Docker applications.

  • Step 3: Create a Docker Compose file. Define the services, networks, and volumes needed for your Farcaster node.

  • Step 4: Transfer the Docker Compose file to your VPS. Use SCP or another file transfer method.

  • Step 5: Deploy the Farcaster node. Run the Docker Compose file on your VPS to start the Farcaster node.

Installing Docker on VPS [1]

  • Connect to your VPS: Use SSH to connect to your VPS. Example command: ssh root@YOUR-VPS-IP-ADDRESS.

  • Update package index: Run sudo apt-get update to ensure your package index is up to date.

  • Install Docker dependencies: Use sudo apt-get install ca-certificates curl gnupg to install necessary packages.

  • Add Docker’s GPG key: Run curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /etc/apt/keyrings/docker.gpg.

  • Set up Docker repository: Use echo "deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture) signed-by=/etc/apt/keyrings/docker.gpg] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu $(lsb_release -cs) stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null.

  • Install Docker: Run sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io.

  • Verify Docker installation: Use docker -v to check the installed Docker version.

Creating Docker Compose File

  • Define services: Specify the services needed for your Farcaster node in the Docker Compose file.

  • Set up networks: Define the networks that the services will use.

  • Configure volumes: Specify any volumes needed for persistent storage.

  • Example Docker Compose file: Create a file named docker-compose.yml with the necessary configurations.

  • Ensure permissions: Verify that the transferred files have the correct permissions on the VPS.

  • Check file integrity: Ensure that the files were transferred without corruption.

  • Organize files: Place the Docker Compose file and any other necessary files in a designated directory on the VPS.

  • Verify file locations: Double-check that all files are in the correct locations before proceeding.

Improving Deployment Setup [1]

  • Connect a domain: Purchase a domain and point it to your VPS IP address.

  • Set up backups: Implement a backup strategy to protect against data loss.

  • Enhance security: Apply security measures such as disabling root SSH access and using key-based authentication.

  • Use secrets management: Manage sensitive configuration data securely.

  • Automate deployments: Use tools like Ansible to automate the deployment process.

  • Set up CI/CD: Implement continuous integration and continuous deployment pipelines for automated updates.
