Install NodeJS on Amazon Ami

Last Updated On

You should be already connected to your Linux instance using SSH.

Following the official documentation of NodeJS, we would run the following command (This would add NodeJS distributions repositories):

$ curl --silent --location https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo bash -

The next and final step is to download and install:

$ sudo yum -y install nodejs

To ensure that node was installed correctly, use node -v. Output should be similar:

$ node -v
$ v6.11.2
