I followed the directions in renaming the unix file to just .env and yet was still getting the [nodemon] app crashed error, so I read the other two topics about this and both are about simply renaming your .env file which I already did. However, when I found an old thread that said it had solved the problem and I read the so-called solution:
"found the Problem
delete the file name “dotenv_win”
delete those words and the file will only be “.env "
It doesn’t have any name it is just .env
Put Nothing before the .env just leave it blank”
I must have misunderstood because I deleted the file named “dotenv_win” and I think I was supposed to just change the file name. But now that entire file is gone so what do I do now? Can anyone tell me what that file contained so I can recreate it? I am a Mac user so I still have the unix version file. Really unsure why this is crashing. Here’s a screenshot of my terminal.
