How do I install NodeJS on my Managed VPS?

NodeJS is a server-side Javascript runtime environment which aims to assist in the building of websites that are light, but most importantly, scalable. For example, you may wish to use NodeJS to build real-time, high traffic applications.

At 20i, it's available as a one-click install for those with Managed Hosting.

To enable NodeJS you'll need to:

  • Logi n to your 20i account.
  • After logging in, go to the Manage VPS section of the control panel.
  • After selecting 'Manage', a list of applications and software will be on the right-hand side of the page under VPS Software.
  • From this point, select the slider to install .NodeJS (installation may take a minute or two).
