Welcome back everyone (our original thread was destroyed).

Good block hash:
18:59:12
getblockhash 142700
18:59:12
539f1b8c495a568e4dcb69ae817679e4b5f53e4ef2ccba78f030543fe5ae6316


So far we had Earlz test TLT, and he tested a maturity date ending in the past successfully.  I tested one past (and was able to spend) and one future (and was not to spend).
Then we added an error message preventing a user from spending early (so they dont get stuck with needing to do zapwallettxes=1).


One thing you guys can jump on testing:  You can test BBP drive.  That's documented in the wiki in the OP post.

Hey Rob could you update the BBP drive wiki when time , its still not restored.

Thanks.

Overall i think nice feature.

When minimizing the BBPdrive.exe i would have liked if it could go to the hidden icons section on windows 10  where  your speakers , windows security , network etc are.  Also like a harddrive bbp icon would be sweet.

Great testing man.  I really like the APPstyleLcabin, that things is beautiful.

So on the deleted file, this actually might be OK if it still on the internet.  This is because our CDN gives you a 'globalcdn.biblepay' link at first and that is the direct URL to the sanctuary.  (But we back up files into our IPFS provider just in case) and I will show you how to check if its really deleted once you get BMS up and running and we do a Video test, I can show you how to go that dir and see if its deleted.

Anyway you can also check like this:  If you restart BBP drive and leave it on for at least 60 seconds, if that file stays deleted, then its really deleted and this web instance is just an IPFS backup.

I like your two suggestions and frankly I would like to do those but if we get more interest in using the program cause of course theres a long list of things to do with our youtube feature (like adding AI to it for example), but yes those are definitely needed.    I added a github issue for you for this:
https://github.com/biblepay/BBPDrive/issues/1

Note that anyone can add these feature request to each github if they want.

Hello Brother Rob.

Finally i have got the testnet Sanctuary and BMS up and running on the 20.04 node.
It was easy enough following the guides https://wiki.biblepay.org/Create_Sanctuary and https://wiki.biblepay.org/Install_BMS
I also threw an eye at the  https://docs.dash.org/en/stable/masternodes/setup.html

As for compiling the core wallet https://github.com/biblepay/biblepay/blob/develop/BuildBiblePayDevelop.txt it was just copy paste on this VPS no issues there.

I ran the
Code: [Select]
masternode status and
Code: [Select]
mnsync status  and i got
Code: [Select]
"state": "READY",
  "status": "Ready"
and
"IsBlockchainSynced": true,
  "IsSynced": true

Good block hash:
18:59:12
getblockhash 142700

539f1b8c495a568e4dcb69ae817679e4b5f53e4ef2ccba78f030543fe5ae6316
so i ran the getblockhash comand

Code: [Select]
getblockhash 142700
539f1b8c495a568e4dcb69ae817679e4b5f53e4ef2ccba78f030543fe5ae6316

That looks fine.

After that i installed the BMS , went fine and after posting bms adress in the browser i got :

Code: [Select]
1029|0|v1.2|Status: OK
|https://185.182.186.162:8443|Synced_Count: 101, File_Count: 131838, Synced: 0.0007660916605158102
<EOF>

The only thing that i had abit trouble with was the biblepay-cli but that seems fixed aswell.

Hi Bro. Earlz, I hope you are blessed.
This looks really good, now we can make some real progress.

On the dash guide @ https://docs.dash.org/en/stable/masternodes/setup.htm, is there anything that we need to add to Create Sanctuary wiki page because its muddy?  Cause on one hand, getting the doc destroyed forced me to create a more succinct doc (which is good I think) but otoh its more for power users.  Ill be glad to add something if there was uncertainty somewhere.

Im very excited that you have both the sanc running and BMS is syncing now.  It should be synced within an hour or so.

In the mean time, I want to make you aware that we have a wilcard CDN SSL cert that we bought and deployed with BMS (its integrated with the program) and what this does is allows us to issue any hostname while the CDN is running and respond to the user without ssl errors.  So for example, your sanc is internally known as this DNS address to the other sancs:

https://sanc185182186162.cdn.biblepay.org:8443/BMS/Status

See if you open that in a browser, you won't get any SSL error because of the wildcard.  Anyway, the reason I mention this is I'm going to give you some pages you can hit from your browser that let you see Sanc videos directly from your sanc (proving that its working).  Its also possible to upload an s3 file directly into your sanc and get it onto the biblepay network by using the biblepay API.  https://wiki.biblepay.org/API

So let me get some of this info together for you once this sanc is almost synced, lll be back asap.

Not at all. My problem was the biblepay-cli, i received some error "cannot connect to 127.0.0.1 make sure biblepayd is running" something like that so i added the RPC arguments in the config file.
Code: [Select]
#----
rpcuser=XXXXXXXXXXXXX
rpcpassword=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
#----
listen=1
server=1
daemon=1
#----
#masternodeblsprivkey=
externalip=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
#----

I dont know if the masternodeblsprivkey=xxxxx + testnet=1 should be enough but for some reason i dont get the cli to respond without the rpc commands.

For sure looking forward for some test cases  :D ;D

Whew good, Im glad our wiki is OK for now praise God.  I think I know the problem with biblepay-cli.  When you run it simply as ./biblepay-cli command,  It tries to look to your "biblepay.conf" file for credentials to connect to biblepayd.
All you have to do is specify where your config is.  If for example your testnet conf is called "biblepaytest.conf" then do like this:

./biblepay-cli -conf=biblepaytest.conf getmininginfo
(This assumes of course that biblepaytest is in the ~/.biblepay directory, thats where I usually have it on non prod sancs. )

Yeah, let me look at these test cases next.

I'm going to start sharing some commands to query videos too.

PS
Your conf file is fine, but note that a lot of that is no longer necessary (I think each of those things had value in the past).
You can try putting a pound sign in front of everything except:
masternodeblsprivkey=
and
testnet=1


Using externalip is usually overkill.  I used to put that in because 'masternode status' showed some crazy result, but I found out later it always resolved itself after 20 hours lol.

Here is a little tiny test case that shows which nodes Your sanc knows about (this is so it knows how to reach out and refer video streamers to another sanc, if your sanc if missing a piece for example).  It also comes into play with our VIDEO-POSE (where sanc operators dont get paid if they run inferior nodes, ie low proc count and low hard drive size):

https://sanc185182186162.cdn.biblepay.org:8443/BMS/Nodes

If you run that command from a browser you should see everyone that your node connected to.
Note that the 64 processor machine is my home desktop but its not always on, so it would be a prime example of one getting POSE banned.
And I see your new node has 6 procs, way to go man.

We will also have other VIDEO-POSE rules (like hashes per sec) so that people cant cheat this etc.  I think when the sidechain is released we can also test that a node is fully synced too.  (For now however we do ensure the node can do 1MM HPS, that the hard drive is 399gb or greater and 6 proc count) so that this is very fair...

Test case to ensure an individual sanctuary can play a video directly from the sanc:

This is a nice feature even though it would be a long shot to actually use it, this allows you to play a Sanc video directly from the sanc into the browser (no CDN required).  So if your videos are synced, and you have a connection to the sanc, and the rest of the world is down, the video will still play.

URL:

https://sanc185182186162.cdn.biblepay.org:8443/BMS/PlayVideos

Note that this video list will grow as your sanc syncs to 100%.  We only have about 300 videos right now being stored (these videos are the ones uploaded into social.biblepay.org into the video room, that is what we are hosting). 

So to perform the test just click on one of the videos, and notice the sanc will generate a local url (a url playable directly from the sanc), then skip around in the video and ensure it plays.


And so how does this actually work for users?
The way it works for users is when the user hits our global CDN (thats our load balancer), this load balancer pushes the traffic out to one of our 'fully qualified bms nodes' (they get fully qualified when their reverse dns record is established and they are synced), and when that video request starts, it is only for seconds 1-5 of the video.  Each 5 seconds are re-evalutaed and the video is streamed from whichever node has the piece.  So a 20 min video might have 200 pieces, and each 5 sec piece is streamed independently from a different sanc (it is not designed for one sanc to stream an entire video but rather each piece is evaluated as the video is played, and pulled from the sanc that has it).
