I you have more than one license of Profit Trailer, you can run a second bot. It can be another BTC bot running a different strategy, or trading ETH, or even USDT. But for whatever reason, you can run multiple bots.
First off, make sure you have enough RAM. I suggest you have at least 1GB for one bot. If you want to add a second bot, I suggest you upgrade your plan to 2GB of ram.
Log into your Linux VPS and copy and paste the command and press ENTER.
cd /home && wget https://tradingbot.ca/scripts/profittrailer/v2/bot2-install && sh bot2-install
To install a 3rd bot
cd /home && wget https://tradingbot.ca/scripts/profittrailer/v2/bot3-install && sh bot3-install
To install a 4th bot
cd /home && wget https://tradingbot.ca/scripts/profittrailer/v2/bot4-install && sh bot4-install
Once its done, you just need to configure the application.properties file.
cd /home/tradingbot/profittrailer/bot2 then press ENTER.
(For bot3 and bot 4 use)
cd /home/tradingbot/profittrailer/bot3 then press ENTER.
cd /home/tradingbot/profittrailer/bot4 then press ENTER.
nano application.properties then press ENTER.
Remember, all info for the nano application.properties can be found online with the link below .
Now there are a few things in this file you need to add for Profit Trailer to work. This is the bare minimum. You are free to customize anything else that fits your needs.
license = your ProfitTrailer license key
server.port = 8082 (be sure to use a different port then bot1. each bot must use a different port
trading.exchange = BINANCE or BITTREX or POLONIEX ( must be UPPERCASE)
default_api_key = The Exchange API key registered with PT Assistant
default_api_secret = The Secret key for the default_api_key
trading_api_key = The second Exchange API key.
trading_api_secret = The Secret for the second API Key
NOTE: You can copy/paste all the info here. If you are using Putty, you can right click where you want to paste it.
Once you are done, press CRTL O then press enter. This will save the file. Then press CRTL X to exit nano and go back to command line.
pm2 start pm2-ProfitTrailer.json and press enter to launch Profit Trailer.
Give it a few seconds, then open your web browser and type http://vps_server_ip:8081 (assuming you never changed the port) and press enter.
You will get prompted to create an Admin password and to enter in your exchange Default API key.
Once you do that, it wll take you to the login screen. Enter in your password and you are all set.
If you ever have issues with your bot and you want to stop, restart or look at the log files below are the commands to do it.
pm2 list – this will show you all the bots/processes working. (Profit Trailer, PTMagic,Profit Feeder)
