New User: Where do I install a KeystoneJS (NodeJS, MongoDB, Express) app?

Posted October 26, 2015 5k views

I want to create a new app using KeystoneJS, which is just an easy way to start a NodeJS/ExpressJS/MongoDB app. I’m having trouble figuring out where to install it. I know the default directory is ’/var/www/html’, but does it make sense to put it in that ‘html’ folder? Is there a way to define what the 'index’ directory is?

  • Hi,

    From Keystone’s documentation, it seems like you’re free to create your project anywhere. It may be easiest for organization to use a structure like /var/www/html/ but you could even put it in your user’s home directory without issue.

You can install and run your KeyStoneJS app in any directory you want. It is good practice to setup a seperate user for your project and create/run your project under that user’s home directory.
