If you fire up a fresh polkadot it starts to sync from scratch, which will take a while.

Using an up to date database you can speed up the process. Best is to shortly start the relevant polkadot binary, so the file structure gets created, then stop it and execute the code below. After this you can start the binary and it will only need a short period to sync and start validating.

Tip: there are different size databases, a “pruned” database is sufficient for a validator node.
