Installing binary node.js on Linux

To install node.js, log into your vps or server through SSH.

Get the linux binary based on your os at either 32 or 64 bit.

To see the architecture run: uname -m

i386 or i686 use 32 bit

x86_64 use 64 bit

For example on a 64 bit server as of this writing:

untar with
tar -zvxf node-v0.10.25-linux-x64.tar.gz
cd node-v0.10.25-linux-x64/bin


./node path/to/.js
