Just got a IPFS node up. What should I pin?


I just got a IPFS node up, I am using digital ocean for a VPS.

I was wondering what should I pin?


First things first: initialize your repo with ipfs init --profile=server. This will make IPFS filter out private IP addresses and avoid dialing them (which can trigger portscan warnings).

As for pinning, if you have lots of space you can pin Wikipedia. Hashes here:


Error: Unrecognized option ‘profile’

I get the error above ^

You should probably upgrade to the latest IPFS version (0.4.11) or even the latest RC (0.4.12-rc1). There quite a few fixes in both of these releases that will be very relevant to running IPFS on a server.
