Install Node.js 10.15.1 LTS on Debian 9 Stretch

If you’re a Noob and wondering how to install Node.js on Debian or Ubuntu, just like me..

Well, let me tell you, you’re in a right place. Of course you can install Node.js by using command apt install but the version of Node.js you might get would not satisfy you. Sometimes you’d get older version of Node.js, or in some case you might need a certain version of Node.js.

So, any better way?

Yes.. go visit this page 🙂

Take a look on this section

Node.js v10.x:

# Using Ubuntu
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

# Using Debian, as root
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | bash -
apt-get install -y nodejs

Last thing you might check from console by typing node -v to get the version of Node.js installed.

Install Siberian CMS on Debian / Ubuntu with Nginx and PHP-FPM

What is Siberian CMS?

Siberian is an open-source CMS for building mobile applications for iOS and Android. It is usable without technical knowledge and has been adopted by thousands of companies worldwide.

It is interesting, so I gave a shot to install on local environment.

Preparations

  • Nginx was installed
  • Maria db / MySQL was installed
  • PHP-FPM and some modules were installed

    You might also need to increase max_execution_time value on your php-fpm configuration. I gave 300 seconds for this value
  • Setup a virtual host for Nginx. You can follow the instruction here
  • Create a database that’s going to be used by Siberian CMS

Done. Continue to the next step.

Install

First, get the free version of Siberian CMS from siberiancms.com. The installer will be sent to your email address provided. It contains a download link of the installer. The installer is a php file named “index.php” compressed as zip.

Extract zip file and place “index.php” to the virtual host you prepared. Then access your virtual host from web browser. It will ask you to download Siberian CMS, please be patient.

To install, just follow the instructions, it’s easy.
