Minerator web status
Minerator will start a web server with status on port 80 on you mining machine. Connect to your mining machine with a web browser to get status on what Minerator is doing. My mining machine is at IP 192.168.1.112 so I type that in my browsers address bar. If you don't know your IP address you can find out by reading step 3 in the guide here.
Here is an example of status output for 3 BCU1525 mining Lyra2z,
Minerator log file
If you want to look at what Minerator is doing in text you can follow the log file with the tail command. Ctrl-c will exit tail but leave Minerator running.
tail -f /var/log/minerator.log
To freely move around in the log you can instead use the less command, 'q' will quit less, /searchterm will search in the file and 'n' will go to next item found by the previous search.
