FAQ

1. Issue with installing packages

If you couldnt install binary bot with a different node version, try cleaning npm cache. - To clear a cache in npm, we need to run the

npm cache clean --force
command in our terminal. - Delete cache directory. The default cache directory is ~/.npm on Posix (mac or linux), or %AppData%/npm-cache on Windows. - Run
rm -rf ~/.npm
- Run
npm install

2. Getting Permission Denied Error on localhost

Try

sudo npm start
instead of
npm start

3. Cannot access the site
