To deploy an AngularJS application on Vultr, you can follow these steps:

  1. Sign up for a Vultr account and create a new server instance. Choose the desired server location and operating system.
  2. Connect to your server via SSH using a tool like PuTTY (for Windows) or the Terminal (for macOS and Linux).
  3. Update the server's package list by running the command:
1
sudo apt-get update


  1. Install Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager) if they are not already installed on the server. You can use the following command to install them:
1
sudo apt-get install nodejs npm


  1. Use npm to install the Angular CLI (Command Line Interface) globally by running:
1
sudo npm install -g @angular/cli


  1. Navigate to the directory where you want to deploy your AngularJS application. This could be the default /var/www/html directory or a custom directory. For example, if you want to use the default directory, run:
1
cd /var/www/html


  1. Use the Angular CLI to create a new AngularJS project. Replace
1
ng new <project-name>


  1. Once the project is created, navigate into the project's directory:
1
cd <project-name>


  1. Build the AngularJS project by running the following command:
1
ng build --prod


  1. The build output will be located in the dist/ directory within your project folder.
  2. Rename the dist/ directory to a name you prefer, such as public/:
1
mv dist public


  1. Start a web server to serve the AngularJS application. One recommended option is to use a lightweight server like Nginx. Install Nginx if it is not already installed:
1
sudo apt-get install nginx


  1. Configure Nginx to serve your AngularJS application by editing the default configuration file. For example:
1
sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/default


Replace the existing contents with the following configuration, adjusting the root option to point to your project's public/ directory:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
server {
    listen 80;
    server_name your_domain.com;

    root /var/www/html/<project-name>/public;
    index index.html;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html;
    }
}


  1. Save the configuration file and exit the editor (Nano: Ctrl+X, Y, Enter).
  2. Restart Nginx to apply the changes:
1
sudo service nginx restart


  1. Your AngularJS application should now be accessible through the server's IP address or domain name.


Please note that these steps provide a general guideline, and there might be additional configurations required based on your specific needs or server setup.
