I'm about to install node.js (Question about installing). It says that I have to install some packages first for using git and stuff if I'm running a clean server, which I actaully do:
sudo apt-get install g++ curl libssl-dev apache2-utils git-core
Okay - everything's good so far. But why should I install some apache stuff, when I only want to use node.js?
Do I really need that?
This question is only relevant for people, who want to compile node themselves. I recommend using the simpler and safer
