How to start the epoch test net?

@dankingori Your release URL looks wrong to me, It should be https://github.com/aeternity/epoch/releases/download/v0.12.0/epoch-0.12.0-ubuntu.tar.gz

However, the latest release is 0.14.0 with slightly changed release filename, you could try: wget https://github.com/aeternity/epoch/releases/download/v0.14.0/epoch-0.14.0-ubuntu-x86_64.tar.gz

@dincho Thankyou very much , your insight helped. I manged to pull the release Binary , and joined the testnet. However I think Using Docker image is pretty easy, running the node/s in the containers.

@dankingori Not sure if you’re asking if we build docker images or just saying it’s easier to use Docker container than installing the release binary yourself :slight_smile:

Anyway, we do build docker images, you can check it’s documentation (latest release) at: https://github.com/aeternity/epoch/blob/v0.15.0/docs/docker.md

@dincho I am saying I found it easier to use Docker Container .
