I assume you are talking about the following ChatBot

If you are, then you can check this guide

Preparing deployment of ChatBot

You would first need to deploy NodeJS on your ubuntu server.

Once you have NodeJS installed, you’ll need to install atleast Python 3.5. To do so, you can execute the following on your server

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y upgrade

Once you have your enviroment upgrade, you’ll need to install some additional packages:

npm install
npm install express

Now you’ll be ready to deploy chatbot.

To do so, you’ll need to use git. Enter the directory you wish to deploy chat bot and run the following command:

git clone

Now the last bit, to start chatbot just execute

sudo node index.js

You should get the following reply

Chatbot is listening on port 8000!
