How to install Hastebin on Ubuntu 20.04?

Hello, friends. In this post, you will learn how to install on your computer or server Hastebin in Ubuntu 20.04.

According to the information provided by GitHub:

Haste is an open-source pastebin software written in node.js, which is easily installable in any network. It can be backed by either redis or filesystem, and has a very easy adapter interface for other stores.

Major design objectives:

  • Be really pretty
  • Be really simple
  • And be easy to set up and use

This way we can install a client that we can use in almost any system or server to have a particular instance ourselves, so you can implement it in personal projects or internal networks.

In this post, we will run the commands using the root user. So, open a terminal or via SSH and run

sudo -i

After typing the password, make sure to update the operating system

apt update
apt upgrade

After that, install the packages needed for the tutorial:

apt install software-properties-common git

Now we have to install NodeJS on Ubuntu 20.04 and for this you have to add the application repository.

curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_14.x | bash -

and then, install NodeJS by running

apt install nodejs

and check the installed versions with the commands:

node --version
npm --version

After that, use git to get the latest stable version of the application.

git clone https://github.com/seejohnrun/haste-server.git

Next, access the folder that is generated called haste-server.

cd haste-server/

And from there, run the following command to start the installation:

npm install

Then run this other command to update the dependencies and their versions

npm update

Configuring Hastebin before using it

Now Hastebin will be installed, but it is convenient to change the default 7777 port to 80.

To do this, edit the config.js file.

nano config.js

And replace

"port": "7777",


"port": "80",

Save the changes and close the text editor.

It is a good idea to install pm2 to manage the execution of Hastebin.

npm install pm2 -g

And now start the execution of Hastebin

pm2 start server.js
1.- Stating Hastebin
1.- Stating Hastebin

Save the initial configurations and make it start with the system

pm2 save
PM2] Saving current process list...
PM2] Successfully saved in /root/.pm2/dump.pm2
pm2 startup

So, open your web browser and go to http://your-server and you can now enjoy Hastebin
