This document provides a simple step by step guide to installation on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS.

This guide assumes a single server holding both the database and the API.

Node.js 6.x

$ sudo apt-get -y update
$ sudo apt-get -y upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install gcc make build-essential python-software-properties
$ sudo curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
$ sudo apt-get install nodejs


$ sudo apt-get -y install mongodb

For the tests to run you will need stand alone mongods running at localhost:27017 and localhost:27018. To do this you need to define a new mongod on 27108:

$ sudo mkdir -p data/db1 data/log1
$ sudo mongod --dbpath ~/data/db1 --logpath ~/data/log1/log --port 27018 --fork


Install GCC to provide the latest build of the c++ bson extension (not required, but improves performance):

sudo apt-get install gcc make build-essential
