I use PM2 to run my node processes in production (on Ubuntu 14.04). After upgrading from node 0.12.x to nodejs 4.4.x, the command to run node(js) changed from
nodejs. I followed the instructions on the nodesource distribution installation instructions.
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_4.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
PM2 still wants to call
node, even though the newer version uses the command
nodejs. I hacked it by replacing the node binary with a sim link like this:
mv /opt/bitnami/nodejs/bin/node /opt/bitnami/nodejs/bin/node.old ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /opt/bitnami/nodejs/bin/node
and this seems to work fine. But would prefer to simply change a config in PM2 to point to the new binary.
What is the best way to make pm2 compatible with an upgrade to nodejs 4.4.x?
Update: these are the places where
node exists on this server
root@ip-172-30-1-190:/usr/bin# find / -name "node" -type f /opt/bitnami/nodejs/bin/node /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/node /usr/local/bin/node /usr/local/n/versions/node/4.4.1/bin/node
I originally tried to upgrade node using npm and the
n package using this tutorial, which accounts for the
