Installing Node.js 0.10.24 on CentOS 6.4
The steps below outline how to install Node.js 0.10.24 on a fresh installation of CentOS 6.4.
First, you'll want to update the software repository to the latest versions using
$ yum -y update
You'll also need to install
Development Tools in order to compile Node.js
$ yum -y groupinstall "Development Tools"
I also recommend installing
screen. However, it shouldn't be used for long running processes.
$ yum -y install screen
Select a directory to compile the source in
$ cd /usr/local/src
Now we're ready to download the latest version of
$ wget http://nodejs.org/dist/node-latest.tar.gz
Unarchive and change into the directory
$ tar zxf node-*.tar.gz $ cd node-v*
Prepare the compiler
Now to actually compile the source code
Finally, we can install Node.js
$ make install
You can now verify that
NPM are installed by running the following commands.
$ node --version $ npm --version
If you haven't done so already, you'll also want to open up port 80 and possibly redirect port 80 to another port.
