$50 for 1 on 1 assistance installing Storj

I am frustrated with these install instructions that make ZERO sense for Ubuntu installs.
getting errors left and right.

So if you want to make an extra $50 helping me install this Storj on my Ubuntu today then reply and we can go from there. I would need you to be able to help me TODAY asap.

Reply if you can do this. Thank you in advance.

Are you trying to setup the node with docker or without? With docker it should be pretty easy. Which Ubuntu-Version are you using?

With docker - Not as easy as one would think.

Version 22.04.1 LTS
Thats the Ubuntu server ver. i am using

ok, where exactly is the issue? Which steps were successful and which were not?

At this point I have no idea what i have set up or not. The directions have me all turned around not knowing what way is up. I got to the part where i entered the command :

docker run -d --restart unless-stopped --stop-timeout 300
-p 28967:28967/tcp
-p 28967:28967/udp
-p 14002:14002
–user $(id -u):$(id -g)
–mount type=bind,source=”/home/diamonddog/.local/share/storj/identity/storagenode”,destination=/app/identity
–mount type=bind,source=”/storjdir",destination=/app/config
–name storagenode storjlabs/storagenode:latest

and i get this error :
docker: Error response from daemon: invalid mount config for type “bind”: bind source path does not exist: /storjdir.
See ‘docker run --help’.

ok that means that the path that you provided does not exist on your system. Can you specify the full absolute path to the directory where you want STORJ to save its data here instead of ”/storjdir"?

Something like “/mnt/extdrive1/storj/node1” for example.

The directory DOES exist but at this point i really dont care where or what its named so I can just create a new one and if you tell me how to do that so this works that would be GREAT!

ok so it exists inside your user directory? Like “/home/diamonddog/storjdir”?
Or in the root of your filesystem?

not sure. But i did do mkdir i think in root if i am not mistaken

Can you check that with using the “ls” command? That should list all files and directories in your current cli-location.

This is all i got here
identity_linux_amd64.zip snap

You may have a problem with permissions if you created the dir “/storjdir” as root user. But try to run the docker container as another user.

Please do an “ls -la” to list permissions.

ok, how did you mount that 9TB drive? Do you have that command?

It was already mounted its a RAID on a server

here is the output for the permissions :
diamonddog@storj1:~$ ls -la
total 10028
drwxr-x— 6 diamonddog diamonddog 4096 Jan 29 22:53 .

-rw-r–r-- 1 diamonddog diamonddog 0 Jan 29 21:00 .sudo_as_admin_successful

If he mounted it correctly it would only be in a location for example /mnt/hd1/storjdir
You wouldnt be able to directly access it any other way…

I installed UBUNTU on the 9TB raid array and it shows when i log on

So you booted off the 10TB drive, so you need to create a dir and point docker to that dir.

How do I do that? What are the exact commands you want me to enter to do all of that?

Kinda the same as you did with identity that for example
