ERROR at: Advanced Node and Express - Set up the Environment

Tell us what’s happening:

Hello every one!

I was trying to complete the Advanced Node and Express - Set up the Environment exercise, and I couldn’t pass on the final task “Your client should connect to your server.”

I know that this section is under maintenance, but I would like to know if the problem is on my code or in the exercise.

Challenge: Set up the Environment

Hi Julio,

I had the same issue. The problem was that I created a new client.js file in the root folder instead of adding adding ‘let socket = io();’ to the client.js file already present in the public folder.

The FCC test passed after I made that change.

I hope it helps.

Thank you so much! I had missed that completely.
