You've subscribed to a Web POWER web hosting plan to deploy Node.js applications, and you want to deploy a real-time presentation slide platform on it.

This guide will explain how to do it.

Find out how to install Slideshow on your POWER web hosting plan.


If you have just started to use your Web POWER web hosting plan, we suggest to have a look at our Getting started with a POWER web hosting plan guide before going further.


Let's suppose you have the default configuration for Node.js hosting:

  • Runtime: nodejs 14
  • Entrypoint: index.js
  • DocumentRoot: www

To verify your configuration, you can use the Retrieve active configuration API endpoint.

Connect via SSH to your POWER web hosting. Let's begin by retrieving the sources of the project:

rm -rf www
git clone www

Now let's go into the www folder, do an npm install and symlink the entrypoint to the application main file:

cd www
npm install --save
ln -fs server.js index.js

Then restart your instance and your slideshow platform will be online.


Terminal output:

 ~ $ rm -rf www

~ $ git clone www
Cloning into 'www'...
