How to install
As Node.js is the recommended middleware platform, lets build and run linux-dash on CentOS with Node.js
For steps to install Node.js, please click here
1. Download latest version from github
Download the latest version of linux-dash from github and copy over to the directory where you want the application to run and unzip
[root@rhel7master nodejs]# wget https://github.com/afaqurk/linux-dash/archive/master.zip
[root@rhel7master nodejs]# unzip
2. Change directory to the unzipped directory and install
[root@rhel7master linux-dash-master]# npm install
By default, linux-dash listens on port 80, if you need to listen on an alternate port, edit server/index.js file and update the line “server.listen(80)” to in my case server.listen(8080) to make it listen on port 8080
3. Allow through firewall (if running)
If you have firewall running on your system, either allow the port or disable firewall. In my case, I let port 8080 through the firewall
[root@rhel7master linux-dash-master]# firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=80/tcp
4. Start linux-dash
[root@rhel7master linux-dash-master]# node server/ Linux Dash Server Started!
