Step 3. Exercise 1. No such file or directory. Are we supposed to create it again?


#1

So I went through the previous sections where I created my personal-website with jekyll and everything worked as it should have (or at least as the exercise said it would). So I got my static website, and went on to the next section.

Then I get to this exercise and try to cd into personal-website, but it's nowhere to be found. There's only workspace/daw/ with nothing inside, so I get the error "No such file or directory".

I used jekyll new personal-website inside /daw/, and eventually went through with the exercise successfully.

My question is, was I supposed to create it again? If so, shouldn't that step be in the instructions?

If I wasn't to create it again, wasn't it supposed to remember me creating it previously?

Hi,

Nope you were not supposed to create it again there's a glitch in the course which has been reported, creating it again is a work around..

Thanks for informing us :green_heart:

I see. Thank you for answering!


#4

When will the glitch be fixed? My output says that there is no such file or directory for the same step


#5

It has been reported, we are not aware of how long will it take to fix, however there is a work around which you can try:

First refresh your page then type each line pressing enter between each

$ mkdir personal-website 
$ cd personal-website/
$ git init
