Estimated reading time: 1 min

Congratulations on your choice to opt-in to our BitNinja Beta program.
This is not just an option for you to test new features; you are also granting us an extraordinary possibility
to highly improve our product, BitNinja Server Security.

  • To do this, you will need to add our beta repository.
  • Add our public SSH key to the server with root privileges. This is required:
    • for our developers to install the beta version manually
    • for monitoring the logs
    • to allow the developers to intervene if there would be any issues
  • Please send an email to our colleague at mark@bitninja.io

Add the BitNinja beta repository

A word of caution:
– A working BitNinja installation is a pre-requirement!
– Installing the BitNinja Beta repository may lead to unforeseen consequences such as unavailable websites and/or temporary service disruptions. Only enable the Beta repository if you’ve acknowledged and accepted the risks involved.
