Preparation of running full node program:

  • Create a directory named “conflux”

└── run
    └── pos_config
    └── conflux.exe
    └── conflux.pdb
    └── hydra.toml
    └── log.yaml
    └── clear_state.bat
    └── libcrypto-1_1-x64.dll
    └── libssl-1_1-x64.dll
    └── start.bat
    └── throttling.toml

Note: the previous tethys.toml has changed to hydra.toml.
