Start the keosd background process

The wallet we’ll be discussing is a daemon called keosd

To run the wallet daemon simply run the executable. Note that if you’re using docker images and are following the docker instructions, then you already have a docker container running the wallet daemon.

cd eos/build/programs/keosd/
./keosd

By default keosd runs on port 8888. This is the same port the nodeos application uses by default, so if you’re running this on the same machine you’ll need to supply the something like this to run on port 8899 “./keosd –http-server-address=localhost:8899”

If you are running the server for the 1st time, you need to auto generate an INI file in the default “config” folder ~/eosio-wallet/config.ini
