Storage prerequisite questions

+1 vote
I want to start a chain fresh from the beginning that i solely want to use for file storage, after reading the Q&A already i can see how to increase the storage from a maximum file size of 2mb to 64mb however i want to get the settings correct from the start....

my question is:

Is their anything else i need to change in the default configuration to enable the smooth setup of a storage blockchain? is there any configuration settings i can add or drop to make my life easier on the chain?

The only thing you need to do is set the maximum-block-sizemax-std-tx-size and max-std-op-return-size large enough in the blockchain parameters, and it sounds like you're already aware of this.

Apart from that you should be aware of the maxshowndata runtime parameter which affects how much data is given in the responses for APIs such as liststreamitems. But this is something you can always change later on, even while MultiChain is running using the setruntimeparam command.
