Node.Js - Unable to connect to server

0 rajadurai kanniappan · September 21, 2015
Hi all, I typed the same code as i have seen in the Bucky's video. But the server is not connecting to browser (the page http: localhost:8888 is not opening in the browser) I have also checked the firewall settings, permission is already given to Node.js.

var http = require('http');

function onRequest(request, response){
console.log("A user made a request" + request.url);
response.writeHead(200, {"Content-Type": "text/plain"});
response.write("Here is some data");

console.log("Server is now running...");

Any guidance would be rally helpful to me.

It worked on mine. This maybe like one of those "have you plugged in the device suggestion" but did you run it with: node yourfile.js?

I can't believe i was beating my head for an hour where the only error was that it automatically runs app.js,
needed to just fucking right click on myfile.js and press run...
