If you want to be able to get up and running again after Node.JS 8.2.0 was released, you’ll need to make a fresh install of Node.
If you already have a Node.
Js 8.1.x or earlier version, then the instructions below should work for you.
First, install the Node.
Java Virtual Machine.
We’ll be using the node-gyp to run this installation.
After that, you need to download the NodeJS 8 runtime package.
After you have that downloaded, you will need to run the following commands:You will also need to install the node module, and then install it with npm install node .
This is the same as installing the Node runtime package in your terminal.
If that doesn’t work, try the following instructions:Once that is done, you can start the node server.
We recommend that you use a virtual machine with a limited amount of RAM to run Node.
We use VMware ESXi with 4GB RAM, so that will work.
To do this, create a virtual network and set the address to 192.168.1.*.
If the node virtual machine doesn’t support the new network, it will give you a warning that the address cannot be mapped to the physical network.
If it can, you may need to set the network interface in the settings.
Then, go to the node directory and run the node client application.
The following command should be the one you use:If everything works fine, you should see a node node_* node_server.js on the server.
If not, then check that the Node 8 runtime has been installed:Now, you might be wondering what happens if you don’t have a physical server available, or if your network is not up to date.
You will need a physical network to communicate with your server, and to install Node.
It is recommended that you download the latest version of Node from the Node website.
To get the latest Node version, use this command:Then, download the node_*.tar.gz package, unpack it, and copy the contents of the node folder to the root of your disk.
You may want to run sudo tar -xzvf node_*,node_*.tgz,node_server*.tar Then, run sudo ./node_installer .
The following instructions assume you already own Node.
This can also be done from your Terminal.
Finally, you must restart the node daemon with:Now you should be able start up your Node server.
Note that this installation is designed for virtual machines running on the internet, not physical servers.
It can be useful to test out this installation in the lab if you want.
You can then connect to your physical server with your node_ server.
You should see the node.js application running on your physical machine.
If everything works, you now have a node_ node_client.js running on a virtual server.
