To install React.js on a VPS (Virtual Private Server), you can follow these steps:
- Connect to your VPS via SSH. You can use tools like PuTTY (for Windows) or the built-in Terminal (for Linux/macOS).
- Update your package manager by running the following command:
sudo apt update
- Install Node.js, which is required to run React.js, using the package manager. You can install Node.js with the following command:
sudo apt install nodejs
- Verify that Node.js is installed correctly by checking the version:
- Install the Node.js package manager, npm, which is used to manage dependencies in your React.js project:
sudo apt install npm
- Verify npm installation by checking the version:
- Now you can create a new directory where you want to store your React.js project. For example:
- Initialize a new npm project with default settings by running:
npm init -y
- Install React.js and its required dependencies using npm:
npm install react react-dom
- Create an entry file for your React.js application. For example, create a file named index.js and add your React code here.
- You can now use a tool like Webpack or Create React App to bundle and build your React.js application. Install the required dependencies for your chosen setup tool accordingly.
- Once your React.js project is built, you can serve it using a web server like Nginx or Apache. Set up the web server and configure it to serve your React.js project's files.
- Configure any necessary routing and proxy settings on your VPS to ensure the React.js application works correctly.
That's it! You have now installed React.js on your VPS and set it up to serve your application.
