Install dependencies

Update system and install build tools

sudo apt -q update
sudo apt -qy install curl git jq lz4 build-essential
sudo apt -qy upgrade

Install Go

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/go
curl -Ls https://go.dev/dl/go1.19.8.linux-amd64.tar.gz | sudo tar -xzf - -C /usr/local

eval $(echo 'export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/go/bin' | tee -a $HOME/.profile)

Download and build binaries

# Clone project repository
cd $HOME
rm -rf persistence
git clone https://github.com/persistenceOne/persistenceCore persistence
cd persistence
git checkout v11.11.0

# Build binaries
make install

# Prepare binaries for Cosmovisor
mkdir -p $HOME/.persistenceCore/cosmovisor/genesis/bin
mv ~/go/bin/persistenceCore $HOME/.persistenceCore/cosmovisor/genesis/bin/
rm -rf build

Install Cosmovisor and create a service

# Download and install Cosmovisor
go install cosmossdk.io/tools/cosmovisor/cmd/cosmovisor@v1.4.0
