Are you on a Windows machine or Mac?

Did you run npm install to grab all the package dependencies?

See:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/59586305/cannot-find-module-sqlite3

And this thread is helpful:

I haven’t completed the course but definitely take a look at npm install. I found this article here which points to a similar problem: How do I resolve “Cannot find module” error using Node.js? - Stack Overflow

i am on a windows also how is npm install related to this

did you read the information we provided?

yes it helped in fixing one of the problems i saw when i opened server.js

do i need to download express?

maybe i shouldn’t have tried to finish sql first.

Have you taken any other SQL courses?

nope it is my first .

It’s always great to try but you may experience some frustration :upside_down_face:.
