I am having a hard time getting started with the very first exercise here. No matter what I try when I try to run the http://localhost:4001/restaurants in the browser nothing happens or I keep getting the same Whitelabel Error Page? Of course this exercise was just a simple copy and paste of code so I can’t imagine what I am doing wrong??

I am also running to the same issue.

I’m also facing the same issue

I have the same problem right now :frowning:

Hi all, I don’t know if anyone is able to go to the next part of the lesson. I was able to move forward by clicking on “view solution”(click the run button a few times to populate the , then copy and paste the code from solution with the code already presented in the lesson, and selected “run”. Then I copied and paste the restaurant link to the web address. Finally check mark appear and “Next” button highlighted to move on to the next lesson. Please share if you did something different that allowed you to move to the next lesson.


Thank you that also worked for me! I had not been able to figure out a way to “trick” this step to pass and I have been trying everything. Thank you for sharing what you did!

Thank you!
