how to downloading configuration files for new node??

anyone can help me??

Running Cardano Node requires multiple configuration files. You must download the configuration files on each computer hosting an instance of Cardano Node for your stake pool.

To download Cardano Node configuration files:

On the computer hosting your block-producing node, using a Web browser navigate to the Cardano Node GitHub repository, then browse to the latest release, then click to expand the Downloads dropdown list in the Technical Specification section of the release notes, and then click the Configuration Files link.

On the Environments page, scroll down to the Production (Mainnet) section, and then click the following links: Node Config , Byron Genesis , Shelley Genesis , Alonzo Genesis and Node Topology Save all configuration files using the default file names in the folder that you set for the $NODE_HOME environment variable

Look for the file you need here :

Click on the file you need, copy the URL and enter the command :

Nope, can be used as is.

Especially if you change the filenames of the genesis files, you will also have to change the filenames inside config.json.

config.json and topology.json are given to cardano-node on the command line when starting it. You should know how they are called there and either rename them or change the call so that these downloaded ones are used.
