how to remove node 4.1 from one-click app

I would like to remove node 4.1.0 from Ubuntu 14.04 Node.js one click app. I need an older node version instead. Should I go and remove binary by hand, or is there some other way?


hey mate,

i am sure you sorted this, but if anyone lands here either destroy the image and just download ubuntu 14.0.4

or download nvm and change versions docs are on github just type nvm github into google

you can also delete it if your super keen i guess just try apt-get remove node or nodejs

I would recommend just rebuilding your droplet from the control panel. Click on your droplet, then on Destroy, In the bottom section, select the default Ubuntu 14.04 image and click Rebuild from image. You will now have a stock Ubuntu 14.04 droplet.

You can then install either the stable version provided by Ubuntu or use a PPA to install a slightly newer version. This tutorial will guide you in this process. Since the node.js one-click keeps up with the latest releases, the copy of node.js is built from source and not easily removable via a package manager.
