Users can also configure the version of Node.js they wish to use for their application from the ‘Options’ tab in Application Manager.
Once the application is created, users can deploy it by clicking on ‘Deploy’ in Application Manager. Once deployed, users can access their application by visiting its domain or subdomain in a web browser. Cpanel users can also manage their applications via Application Manager, allowing them to start and stop the application, view errors and logs, and more.
To host a Node.js app on cPanel, you’ll need to follow these steps:
First, make sure your cPanel account includes Node.js support. You can check this by logging into cPanel and navigating to the Software section. If Node.js is listed, you have access to it. If not, you may need to contact your hosting provider to enable it.
Next, you’ll need to create a Node.js app. You can do this using a framework like Express, or by creating a simple script that runs your Node.js code. You’ll also need to specify which version of Node.js you’re using.
Once you have your Node.js app ready, you’ll need to upload it to your cPanel account. You can do this using cPanel’s file manager or an FTP client.
In cPanel, navigate to the Setup Node.js App section. Here, you can set up a new Node.js app by specifying the app’s name, the app’s entry point file, and the version of Node.js you’re using.
After you’ve set up your Node.js app, you can start it by clicking the “Run” button. This will start your app on a specified port, which you can access using your domain name and the port number.
Finally, you’ll need to configure your domain name to point to your Node.js app. You can do this by creating a new subdomain or adding a new record to your DNS settings.
To host a Node.js app on cPanel’s terminal, you can follow these steps:
- First, login to your cPanel account and navigate to the Terminal icon under the Advanced section.
- In the terminal, navigate to the directory where you want to host your Node.js app using the cd command. You can create a new directory using the mkdir command if necessary.
- Upload your Node.js app files to the directory using the scp or rsync commands. For example, you can use the scp command to upload your files to the server:
scp -r /path/to/your/app username@yourserver:/path/to/your/directory
- Replace username and yourserver with your cPanel username and server address respectively.
- Once your app files are uploaded, navigate to the directory and install any required dependencies using the npm install command.
- Start your Node.js app using the node command followed by the name of your app’s main file. For example, if your app’s main file is index.js, you can start the app with:
- By default, the app will run on port 3000. You can access your app by visiting your server’s IP address or domain name followed by the port number, for example: http://yourserver.com:3000.
- To run your app continuously, you can use a process manager like PM2. To install PM2, run:
npm install -g pm2Once installed, start your app with PM2 using the command:
pm2 start index.jsThis will start your app in the background, and will automatically restart the app if it crashes. You can view your app’s logs, monitor performance, and manage other app-related tasks using PM2 as well.
- That’s it! Your Node.js app should now be hosted on cPanel’s terminal and accessible through your domain name or server IP address.
