Npm commands not work in SSH

I really can’t understand why on my machine via SSH I can execute npm commands and in deploy pipeline is not work? Wtf

Starting deploy
Already up to date.
Deploy end

Result in CircleCI

Starting deploy
Already up to date. line 6: node: command not found line 7: npm: command not found
Deploy end
version: 2.1

# Define the jobs we want to run for this project

Thanks a lot to anyone who helps I really don’t understand what’s going on I’ve tried looking for everything…

You are going to have to check how the system you are accessing is set up in terms of SSH - while your output shows that the script does get executed, it also indicates that you do not have all the env variables set that you expect - things like PATH are likely to be missing.

As I do not know your environment or the script you are running I can not be certain, but by the time you have started a session via SSH and then also created a new shell via sudo your env is not going to be what you expect.

Hi @rit1010, ty for reply is my script and system info.


echo "Starting deploy"
cd ~/apps/clm/core
git pull

node -v
npm -v
echo "Deploy end"

The issue looks like it is coming down to how you have installed node and npm on the system you remote into.

If you are able to execute the script when you open up an SSH terminal session, but the same script does not complete when you use ssh to execute a remote command you need to look at what is different between the 2.

When you operate from within a terminal do you run “sudo bash” or just “./”?

I’ll be honest, I’ve reach the limit of my understanding here - so while I can see a possible difference between the 2 ways you are trying to execute the script I do not know Linux well enough to say what maybe happening.

@rit1010 Yes the problem was in the PATH thanks for clarify the ideas!
