How to set up on my droplet?

February 25, 2015 2.8k views

I want to run on my droplet.

I installed node.js, I installed npm, I installed phant.

I typed "phant" via ssh. No reaction.
I stopped apache with "service apache2 stop" and typed "phant" again. Still, no reaciton.
I'm stuck, what can I do?

  • Looking over the setup details listed here. There is no mention of using a command directly called phant. The instructions indicate that once you complete these steps you open a browser and navigate to port 8080 or connect via telnet to port 8081.

  • @ryanpq What about this then?

    "Now you can start phant:

    $ phant
    phant http server running on port 8080
    phant telnet server running on port 8081


  • You are correct, I apologize for missing that. It does look like the -g flag is required in the install in order for the phant command to be in your path. Did you ensure that the -g flag was used when you did the npm install?

  • Yes. So I reinstalled to make sure I set the flag global. When reeinstalling I found this line:

    npm WARN engine wez-telnet@0.1.1: wanted: {"node":"~0.6.5"} (current: {"node":"v0.10.25","npm":"1.3.10"})
    npm WARN engine phant-meta-nedb@3.1.1: wanted: {"node":"^0.10.30"} (current: {"node":"v0.10.25","npm":"1.3.10"})
    npm WARN engine phant-stream-csv@2.1.1: wanted: {"node":"^0.10.30"} (current: {"node":"v0.10.25","npm":"1.3.10"})
    npm WARN engine phant-manager-http@4.5.10: wanted: {"node":"^0.10.30"} (current: {"node":"v0.10.25","npm":"1.3.10"})

    So, I tried to check my node version with the ssh command: node -v but this doesn't work in any way either:

    root@ProcessingServer:~# sudo node
    root@ProcessingServer:~# sudo node -v
    root@ProcessingServer:~# node -v

    I guess I'm doing something elementary wrong here?

This question was answered by @ildr3him:

got it to work. I had to update nodejs from PPA (whatever this means)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js  
sudo apt-get update  
sudo apt-get install nodejs
