*Note I am bitshirehashaway on bitcointalk & bitsharestalk if your wondering* If you sign up with my digital ocean referral link and spend $10 you will get 0.50 free XPM for your efforts! Remember to get proof though!
Several guides have been put out there for cloud mining, however, I believe that this is ones of the first of its kind for cloud mining primecoin with a pool. I adapted it from my guide from protoshares (http://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=722.0
), however, it had to go through some changes before it worked for primecoin - all of these changes were tested on digital ocean and I effectively played around with the code until I got it to work.

Here is how you start. First you need to sign up for digital ocean. Please make sure to use my referral link: https://www.digitalocean.com/?refcode=3a96071d7d5f
If you use my referral link to sign up and spend at least $10, I will send you 0.50 XPM free!
Next you need to create a droplet. I would recommend the 8gb 4 cpu option that costs $80/month but feel free to go higher or lower. Just don't use the $5/month one because I sometimes got errors when trying to run this program there, I don't think it has enough memory for the job, but you can start at the $10/month one! After you have that done, make sure you pick Debian 7.0 x64 as your image. Then hit create.
Soon your username (always root) and password will be emailed with you. Go to your droplet in digital ocean and then hit console access. Type in your username and password [note: your password won't appear as you type it, just type it and hit enter.]
After you do that. Type in the following code, pay attention to spaces!
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install yasm -y git make g++ build-essential libminiupnpc-dev
sudo apt-get install -y libboost-all-dev libdb++-dev libgmp-dev libssl-dev dos2unix
git clone https://github.com/thbaumbach/primecoin
make -f makefile.unix
./primeminer -poolip=<look below> -poolport=1337 -pooluser=<Enter your payment address here> -poolpassword=<Type the word 'PASSWORD' all caps-beeeeer.org doesn't have actual passwords> -genproclimit=<number of cores your cloud CPU has>
Your pool ip will vary per location. Here are your choices: EU
: 126.96.36.199 US
