    Thanks so much for this guide.

    I just wanted to add some instructions on how to upgrade node.js to the current stable version:
    npm cache clean -f
    npm install -g n

    Use the current stable version:
    n stable

    Or specify the desired version (0.10.21 for example):
    n 0.10.21

    Verify node version:
    node -v

      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for the information. Unfortunately that is not available on our shared plans but can be used on our VPS and Dedicated Servers.

    I installed node complete on my hosting site. node -v is v0.10.33

    I am noticing a problem with running the program though?
    Locally: node server.js runs the program

    But for the hosting site I can’t run it without error:
    js-bson: Failed to load c++ bson extension, using pure JS version
    The magic happens on port 8080

    throw er; // Unhandled ‘error’ event
