Installing Node.js on Ubuntu 14.04.2 server

I know there are many posts and articles on this subject already but I am simply documenting exactly what I did so that I have a reference when, knowing my luck, I have to install the MEAN stack on (many)  more servers in the future.1. Use APT to install all that will be required for setting up Node.js

2. Go to the Node.js download page to get the URL for that latest release then use wget to download it to your server.

3. Expand the tarball, go into the directory and install

*Keep in mind that your version number may differ from mine and adjust as appropriate.

4. We no longer need the source code that was downloaded, so feel free to delete it.
