Install Cloud9 IDE in CentOS 7

by Wayne Thursby

First Things First

First, get a working CentOS 7 server with your preferred stack.
Next, install requirements:

yum groupinstall -y development
yum install -y git glibc-static epel-release nodejs npm

Now clone the git repo and Install the Cloud9 SDK:

git clone c9sdk
cd c9sdk/

Encrypt All The Things

Get DNS set up to point to the box, then use Certbot to get a Let's Encrypt cert:

sudo yum install certbot
certbot certonly --webroot -w /var/www/html/ -d $hostname

The output from this command shows you where the cert is saved.

Combine the cert and private key, and put the result somewhere c9 can see it.

cd /etc/letsencrypt/live/$hostname/
openssl rsa -in privkey.pem -out privkey_rsa.pem
touch combined_key.pem | cat privkey_rsa.pem fullchain.pem >> combined_key.pem
mv combined_key.pem /home/$user/c9sdk
chown $user:$user /home/$user/c9sdk/combined_key.pem

Run It Forever

To keep it running, use Forever:

sudo npm install forever -g
cd c9sdk
forever start server.js -p 8080 -w ~/workspace/ -l --auth developer:cleverpassword --secure combined_key.pem
