Installing Meteor on a fresh VPS with Ubuntu 14.04


#1

I’m setting up a VPS with Ubuntu 14.04. The only thing I’ve done so far is setting up iptables for ssh and web.

Will $ curl https://install.meteor.com/ | sh also install node.js and mongodb?

What else should I think on/consider for my VPS?

When developing only the curl command is necessary. For production use you need to install the correct version of node and mongo usually with replica set. Have a look at https://github.com/arunoda/meteor-up for production use.

Thanks. Sorry for my ignorance but what do you mean by replica set?

No problem. Have a look here https://meteorhacks.com/mongodb-oplog-and-meteor
