How to Install Node.js and NPMon Linux – (1 command)

How to Install Node.js and NPM on VPS and Linux Ubuntu/Debian. 1 single command for LTS Node version with NPM. Here I’m using NodeSource because if we use sudo apt install nodejs npm this command then the older Node version 12.xx will installed so, avoid this command and follw NodeSource for any version either 18.xx, 20.xx or any LTS version.


  • Don’t use Ubuntu repository (it has old nodejs 12.xx)
  • Use NodeSource for latest node version or any version
    • Working for Ununtu 20.04 or latest, Debian 10, 11, 12, Ubuntu Desktop etc


Or run below command for Nodejs latest version withh NPM.
