To run the dockerized block chain, you must first install docker. Note, the normal docker executable might be incompatible with certain operating systems (like Windows 10 Home). If you have an incompatible operating system this might be resolved by installing docker toolbox from:
After installing docker, you will need to download the following files and place them in the same directory:
After downloading the files, open up the command-line in the directory they were downloaded into. Then use the following commands in the command-line:
docker build -t "block_explorer:v1" .
docker run -i -t -p 8080 --name blk_explr "block_explorer:v1"
Docker will map a port on the host that corresponds to a port on the container. To find out the address you should type into your web browser, enter the following command into the command-line:
docker port blk_explr 8080
It should display an address similar to the following:
Enter the address in step 4 into a web browser with the suffix, paicoin-info. For example, if your address was 0.0.0.0:32768 you would enter:
You might need to substitute “0.0.0.0” with “localhost” if your web browser is not being cooperative.
paicoind needs some time to download the entire blockchain so wait a few minutes before doing any work.
