In short you first install NVM, then you install the Node version of your choice with NVM.
wget -qO- https://cdn.rawgit.com/creationix/nvm/master/install.sh | bash
Your restart your shell (close and reopen your sessions). Then you
nvm install stable
to install the latest stable version for example. You can install any version of your choice. Check
node --version for the node version you are currently using and
nvm list to see what you’ve installed.
In bonus you can switch version very easily (
nvm use <version>)
