How Do You Install npm on a CentOS/RedHat/Fedora Server?

Problem scenario
You enter the command "npm -v" but get an error about the command not being found or recognized.  How do you install npm on a RedHat derivative Linux server?

(You may want to see these directions instead if you want to use a script that will work on any distribution of Linux (including RHEL, Debian or SUSE distributions).  These other directions may also be of interest to you.) 

Run these two commands:

sudo su -
yum -y install npm nodejs epel-release
