The environment is
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
NFS Server-side setup
Let’s say your NFS shared directory is
/shared/local, and it maps to local(NFS server) directory
First, we need to clone nvm,
git clone https://github.com:creationix/nvm.git /usr/local/src/nvm
Then let’s make two directories for storing nvm stff.
And we then create
/etc/profile.d/nvm.sh on local(NFS server), this allows us to install node binaries.
#!/bin/bash export NVM_DIR=/usr/local/nvm . /usr/local/src/nvm/nvm.sh export NPM_CONFIG_PREFIX=/usr/local/node export PATH="/usr/local/node/bin:$PATH"
After logging out, and log back in (or simply type
we then run
nvm install 0.12 (in this case, we install node v0.12, we can also install other versions)
chown 755 -R /usr/local/nvm, this gives nfs client approriate access rights. (Otherwise you will see
Now using node undefined after running
nvm use 0.12)
we then create another file (maps to shared directory.Remember,client do not have nvm installed on their
Let’s make one file
/usr/local/nvm.sh on nfs server
#!/bin/bash export NVM_DIR=/shared/local/nvm . /shared/local/src/nvm/nvm.sh export NPM_CONFIG_PREFIX=/shared/local/node xport PATH="/shared/local/node/bin:$PATH"
#2 NFS Client-side setup
Now, let’s log into client server (as root)
Let’s create one file
#!/bin/bash export PATH="/shared/local/bin:$PATH" . /shared/local/init.sh
This will execute nvm initation scripts we created at the end of last section and add node binaries locations to
Now you can log out and log back in, type
nvm , TADA!!
