re: Build a simple app using Node JS and MySQL. VIEW POST


Hi Atauba,

I followed your tutorial and have the following error. Do you have any clues as to why this is so:

C:\Users\PC\OneDrive\Coding\JS\node-mysql-crud-app>nodemon app.js

I have the same error on line 11. Do you have any hints or a solution? Thank you for a short reply.


Try adding the "" for the title values wherever this error shows.


Hi, sorry for the late reply, check if all brackets/braces have been closed and ensure you added the comma after the title key in the res.render function of the index.js file.


Hi i have also got this error, i have re written the file to make sure all brackets are closed and that the comma is in the right place i have even tried making it an if else statement but still can't get it to run. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
