How To Deploy MERN ECommerce On Ubuntu Using Hostinger VPS

Are you looking to set up your own eCommerce website using the MERN stack on an Ubuntu server with Hostinger VPS? You’ve come to the right place! In this guide, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of deploying a MERN eCommerce application on Ubuntu using Hostinger VPS.

What is the MERN stack, you ask? MERN stands for MongoDB, Express.js, React, and Node.js. MongoDB is a NoSQL database, Express.js is a web application framework for Node.js, React is a JavaScript library for building user interfaces, and Node.js is a JavaScript runtime environment. Together, these technologies form a powerful stack for developing web applications.

Hostinger VPS offers virtual private servers with high performance, reliability, and scalability. By deploying your MERN eCommerce application on Hostinger VPS, you can ensure that your website runs smoothly and securely.

Let’s get started with the deployment process:

Step 1: Set up your Hostinger VPS
First, sign up for a Hostinger VPS account and create a new virtual server. Choose Ubuntu as your operating system and follow the on-screen instructions to set up your server. Once your server is up and running, you will receive an IP address and login credentials to access it.

Step 2: Connect to your server
Open a terminal window on your local machine and use the SSH command to connect to your server. Replace ‘your_username’ with your actual username and ‘your_server_ip’ with the IP address of your server.

ssh your_username@your_server_ip

Enter your password when prompted to complete the connection.

Step 3: Install Node.js and npm
Node.js is required to run the backend of your MERN eCommerce application. To install Node.js and npm on your server, run the following commands:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install nodejs
sudo apt install npm

Step 4: Install MongoDB
MongoDB is the database for your MERN eCommerce application. To install MongoDB on your server, follow these steps:

sudo apt-key adv –keyserver hkp:// –recv 68818C72E52529D4
echo “deb xenial/mongodb-org/3.2 multiverse” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-3.2.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt install
