I'm having some trouble installing NodeJS, I'm new to this and as a result am attempting to follow a guide online (outofcontrol.ca/blog/comments/installing-node-bower-and-gulp-on-a-cpanel-box)

I first noticed that there was no 'usr/local/src' directory, but a 'usr/local/share' which I assumed was a shared file between users so I attempted to wget the NodeJS library from there, but unfortunately I ran into some permission issues which I couldn't seem to get around. So, I simply attempted to install NodeJS via the home/public_html directory and it all worked fine until I came to the 'make install' from which I received one error, again regarding permissions:
[Errno13]Permission denied:'/usr/local/include/node/')

I believe it can be fixed by using some form of 'sudo' prefix when attempting to make install, however, I'm incredibly new to this and am not sure how to do so... Also, I'm attempting to do this via SSH.

Thanks for any feedback regarding this...

Hello,

You need to install NodeJS on your server, Without the root user without root access you can not install it on your server. Your access level is listed as "Website Owner", so you will have to contact your web hosting provider to install this.
