Get the latest release of Sia 1.3.3. Download the linux version with the link below
Sia-v1.3.3 linux-amd64.
A quick way is to right click on the link to the zip and copy it to your clipboard.
In your terminal create a new directory called sia: mkdir~/sia.
Now download the zip in the new directory-

wget ...

Unzip: unzip
Delete the zip : rm
Shift all the files from the newly created folder into the directory using mv Sia-v1.2.2-linux-amd64/*./
Delete the empty folder with command rm-R Sia-v1.2.2-linux-amd64.
This will create a new directory of : ./sia/ with all the files.
To interact with the Sia daemon you must use the ./siad command. Do a test trial now : ./siad -h
The -h option can steer you through using the Sia daemon and client.
Next create a list of the modules that are required to start the Sia daemon- ./siad modules. You will not require all the modules that are listed.
Start the daemon: ./siad -M gctwrh &
The daemon will be running in the background and you can interact with the Sia client : ./siac -h
The syncing can take some time. Create a wallet ./siac wallet init
Copy the seed to a new safe location . Don't lose these passwords
Unlock your wallet: ./siac wallet unlock
Create a new wallet address for you to receive funds- ./siac wallet address
Configure the host settings: Learn how at ... st-on-sia/
Confirm your host status: ./siac host
Announce your host: ./siac host announce
In case you wish to run Sia on a different port you must use: ./siac host announce {hostname}:{port}.
You must wait for some time till the other nodes see you:
