The OpenLiteSpeed Node.js One-Click app automatically installs the performance web server OpenLiteSpeed and Node.js. This tends to be more than 4 times faster than Node.js with Nginx. OpenLiteSpeed features easy setup for SSL and RewriteRules. It is flexible and also supports Python and Ruby apps, as well as CMS software like WordPress.

Deploying a Marketplace App

The Linode Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Compute Instance using the Cloud Manager. See Get Started with Marketplace Apps for complete steps.

  1. Log in to the Cloud Manager and select the Marketplace link from the left navigation menu. This displays the Linode Create page with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.

  2. Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy.

  3. Complete the form by following the steps and advice within the Creating a Compute Instance guide. Depending on the Marketplace App you selected, there may be additional configuration options available. See the Configuration Options section below for compatible distributions, recommended plans, and any additional configuration options available for this Marketplace App.

  4. Click the Create Linode button. Once the Compute Instance has been provisioned and has fully powered on, wait for the software installation to complete. If the instance is powered off or restarted before this time, the software installation will likely fail.

To verify that the app has been fully installed, see Get Started with Marketplace Apps > Verify Installation. Once installed, follow the instructions within the Getting Started After Deployment section to access the application and start using it.

Note
Estimated deployment time: OpenLiteSpeed Node.js should be fully installed within 10-15 minutes after the Compute Instance has finished provisioning.

Configuration Options

  • Supported distributions: CentOS 7, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Recommended plan: All plan types and sizes can be used.

Getting Started after Deployment

Accessing the OpenLiteSpeed Node.js App

  1. Log in to your Compute Instance over SSH. See Connecting to a Remote Server Over SSH for assistance. You should see output similar to the following:

    OpenLiteSpeed Nose.js setup information

  2. You are then prompted to enter the domain you’d like to use for this instance. You can optionally use a custom domain provided you’ve already configured the A Records to point to this server’s IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Otherwise, you can skip this by pressing CTRL+C which will use the IP address or default RDNS of the Compute Instance.

    Note
    For more documentation on how to assign a domain to your Linode, please review the [DNS Manager](/docs/guides/dns-manager/) guide for instructions on setting up your DNS records in the Cloud Manager, and read through [DNS Records: An Introduction](/docs/guides/dns-records-an-introduction/) for general information about how DNS works.
    

Now that you’ve accessed your OpenLiteSpeed Node.js instance, check out the official OpenLiteSpeed Node.js documentation to learn how to further configure your OpenLiteSpeed Node.js instance.

Note
Currently, Linode does not manage software and systems updates for Marketplace Apps. It is up to the user to perform routine maintenance on software deployed in this fashion.
