How long should it take to fully sync the blockchain using a VPS? My sync appears to be stuck at 334 days behind?

1 Answer 1


It took mine around 5-7 hours - it does take time! If it appears stuck just type exit then start it up again, it will resume where it left off. If it continues to be stuck check:

  • that port 18080 (default) is open (http://ismyportopen.com/) It should be if you already synced some data, but just rule that out.

  • you have not exceeded your VPS storage allotment. I believe you should have at least 20 GB available, though more than that is recommended.
