Ok, before you just go and say no, please read. I have seen a similar question but I think this one is slightly different.
I'm trying to install node.js on a shared hosting environment. Following this tutorial http://dandean.com/category/code/2010/installing-node-js-on-a-dreamhost-shared-server/ I have managed to eventually clone the git project after my host opened the git port, where I then hit the wall of having no c compiler.
When asking my host about this, they said I could recompile the code elsewhere and reupload, but c compiler is something not included.
My shared server is running CentOS.
I'm pretty new to this sort of thing and have only dabbled in nix CLI for a few months so you may have to explain a few things in more detail than you normally would.
Thanks in advance.
