Ubuntu 16.04 is recommended and can be downloaded from:

Secure WebSockets

Secure WebSockets should be used for the production wallet server. This will require a SSL certificate. In this example we are using Let’s Encrypt, but other SSL certificates will also work. They should be placed in

ssl_key = /etc/casinocoind/ssl/privkey.pem
ssl_cert = /etc/casinocoind/ssl/cert.pem
ssl_chain = /etc/casinocoind/ssl/fullchain.pem

The location can be changed, but changes need to be reflected in the config file.

Important Information

  • The daemon is NOT a wallet
  • Configuration takes place in /etc/casinocoind/casinocoind.cfg
  • Servers should be secured by setting strict firewall rules and allow SSH key-based authentication only
