Syncing the blockchain only

I just want a copy of the blockchain (initial block dowload).
Is running firod -daemon enough?

Hey there Wdmjun! Welcome to Firo!
I’m not sure if I follow what you’re trying to do? Were you having trouble syncing with your wallet?

I want to do an initial block download on a headless server without creating a wallet.

You can start firod with the flag -disablewallet. This will prevent wallet creation.

ok. thanks.
