Hello Meteor helpmates!
I am doing my best to deploy the basic out-of-the-box Meteor app to a remote server. This is running on Ubuntu 16.04 and is managed by Plesk Onyx. I am following the tutorial at (PhusionPassenger.com)[https://www.phusionpassenger.com/library/walkthroughs/deploy/meteor/ownserver/nginx/oss/xenial/deploy_app.html].
When I run …
$ cd bundle/programs/server $ npm install --production
… I get the following error message:
npm WARN firstname.lastname@example.org No description npm WARN email@example.com No repository field. npm WARN firstname.lastname@example.org No license field. npm ERR! Linux 4.4.0-97-generic npm ERR! argv "/opt/plesk/node/7/bin/node" "/opt/plesk/node/7/bin/npm" "install" "--production" npm ERR! node v7.4.0 npm ERR! npm v4.0.5 npm ERR! code ELIFECYCLE npm ERR! email@example.com install: `node npm-rebuild.js` npm ERR!

You can get information on how to open an issue for this project with: npm ERR! npm bugs meteor-dev-bundle npm ERR!

I note the line: “Make sure you have the latest version of node.js and npm installed.” The versions of node.js and npm on this remote server are more recent than the versions on my development machine, where Meteor runs happily.
$ node --version v7.4.0 $ npm --version 4.0.5
$ node --version v4.8.4 $ npm --version 2.15.11
Is this the cause of the problem? If Meteor should be able to run with these more recent versions, where should I send a report on this issue?
Thanks in advance for your insights,
