    Is there a link to a guide for a best practices installation & implementation of Node.js on a ispconfig3 webserver? Everything I've found is 4-5 years old.

    Or is it simply "use the cli, install node & npm, enable php mod_proxy, & proxy_http modules, manage ports for clients. Ispconfig3 won't have an issue."

    e.g. This guide is good enough:

    Edit* wrong link

    Install it and make sure node is in the Jailkit chrooted app sections under System > Server config > > Jailkit. That should work iirc...

    I was wondering whether this coould be a good addition to ISPConfig Autoinstaller?

    Follow up question. The recommended setup for security reasons is to create another user with sudo and install as them. Is this still correct for ISPCONFIG? It won't cause permission problems with jailkit or anything?

    Each ISPConfig site already has its own user, so ISPConfig has this added security built-in by default. Creating another user makes no sense and would just break your setup.
