How to build Node.JS from source on CentOS 7


Step 1: download source

[root@tutorialspots ~]# wget https://nodejs.org/dist/v10.13.0/node-v10.13.0.tar.gz
--2018-11-12 22:25:05--  https://nodejs.org/dist/v10.13.0/node-v10.13.0.tar.gz

Step 2: decompression

tar -xvf node-v10.13.0.tar.gz

Result:

...

Step 3: change dir

cd node-v10.13.0

Step 4: install gcc-c++
