Node.js

im trying to install a nodejs application but I keep getting the same error about "node-gyp" failing to rebuild.

I dont know a lot about nodejs, apart from I can get this to work on my local machine fine but I cant figure out why it wont run on the server.

Ubuntu 14.04 Node v0.12.5 npm v2.11.2

In the error log:

make: g++: Command not found

The command g++ is not found, so you need to install the g++ package (along with build-essential which includes other packages that are required to build/compile programs):

sudo apt-get install build-essential g++

Got the same problem.

I have the same problem with new node.js, with v0.12 it works fine, but on 3, 4, 5, node-gyp and bufferutil falls on git push dokku master.

  • Just checking in with the same problem...

    • 1 Step "THE SERVER" dokku apps:destroy MYAPPNAME
      2 Step "THE CLIENT": git push dokku master

  • Hey everybody!

    I fixed it by deleting the app (dokku apps:destroy MYAPPNAME) and pushing it again.
    The project was rebuilt successfully and dependencies were re-updated.

    Now it works fine on nodejs 5

    • Why does this work? Could you explain it a bit more

      • The problem was in deep dependencies which didn't update during simple git dokku pushing. Old deep dependencies couldn't work with node.js 3, 4 and 5.
        When the project was deleted and pushed again all dependencies was rebuilt. Some of them have been replaced.

how to solve this problem...
