posted in: ARM Servers | 0

Installing Node.js on an Ubuntu miniNode ARM dedicated server is extremely simple!

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

 

Option 1, via ‘apt’:

1.  SSH to your miniNode, and become root.

su -

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

apt-get install nodejs

 

 

Option 2, via git:

1.  SSH to your miniNode, and become root.

su -

2.  Install git.

apt-get install git

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

git clone https://github.com/joyent/node.git
cd node
git checkout v0.10.28 #Try checking nodejs.org for what the stable version is
./configure && make && sudo make install

 

Finally, use Node.js to build cool applications!
