HOW-TO: Install Node.js on the miniNode ARM Server (Fedora)

Installing Node.js on a Fedora 20 miniNode ARM dedicated server is extremely simple!

To get Node.js installed, you have two choices.  Either install it via the ‘yum’ package manager, or, by checking out the code directly from git.  Either method will work great.

Option 1, via ‘yum’:

1.  SSH to your miniNode, and become root.

2.  Install Node.js via the ‘yum’ command.

yum install nodejs npm

Option 2, via git:

1.  SSH to your miniNode, and become root.

su -

2.  Install git.

yum install git

3.  Check out Node.js from the repository, and then build it.

cd node
git checkout v0.10.28 #Try checking for what the stable version is
./configure && make && sudo make install
