How to set up a Lisk Core node with NPM.
- Supported Platforms
Ubuntu 18.04 (LTS) x86_64
Ubuntu 20.04 (LTS) x86_64
12.22.7 (NPM version 6.14.15)
Node.js serves as the underlying engine for code execution.
|The correct version for NPM(6) is installed automatically with version 12 of Node.js.|
It is recommended to use a Node version manager such as NVM. NVM is a bash script that enables the management of multiple active Node.js versions.
Install NVM and follow the official instructions here.
Install the latest LTS version of Node.js using NVM with the following command shown below:
nvm install 12.22.7
If NVM or other package managers are not required, it is possible to install the Node package globally as shown in the following commands below:
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_12.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
For MacOS, please execute the following command below:
brew install email@example.com
It is recommended to use a process manager like PM2 to run Lisk Core in the background.
Check the guide Process management with pm2 for more information.
It is recommended to set up a log rotation, because the log of Lisk Core files can grow very big over time.
Check the guide Managing logs in the SDK docs for more information.
