Setting Azure App Service node version

I wanted to use the Azure App Service console to install some software to test which needed NodeJS.
The default Node version is 0.10.1

This post won’t go into how to install a particular node version (I didn’t need specifics), just how to set one of the default installations.
Microsoft recommends NOT setting minor versions, so I’ll just set 16.

Find supported NodeJS versions #


In the Azure Portal: Advanced Tools –> Runtimes

Set the version #

Your app will restart with a REAL version of NodeJS :D
