Upload Node.js Website to CentOS VPS

January 30, 2015 946 views

I have a Droplet that I've installed CentOS on. I have a website I've built using Express (Node.js web framework). I am having the hardest time figuring out how to upload the web app to my VPS and assigning it to my domain.

I have followed the tutorial: To Install Node.js on the CentOS 7 Server

Can anyone give me some instructions on how to do this, or point me to a tutorial that shows me how to do it?

  • I am getting very close to figuring out how to do this. I have completed all the setup tutorials and Git tutorials and am now looking at FTP and this post. If anyone could help me figure out how to do this that would be great!

    This tutorial provides some information about FTP and includes some basic FTP commands. Additionally it includes links to the variety of FTP tutorials on the DigitalOcean site. FTP is a way to transfer files between hosts over the internet. It is especially helpful as a way to upload or download files to or from a site quickly.
  • I have successfully pointed my domain name to Digital Ocean's name servers and can ping the domain! It hits my droplets IP address and all is looking good. I still have to upload my Node.js Express.js app to my server though.
