Already read through all of the questions and tried everything. No help whatsoever. Please help.

Below is the code that I pasted in to the app.js file

var unsecurePlainTextPassword = "password"; var bcrypt = require('bcryptjs');

bcrypt.genSalt(10, function(err, salt) { bcrypt.hash(unsecurePlainTextPassword, salt, function(err, hash) { console.log(hash); }); });

This is what the console spits out.

treehouse:~/workspace$ node app.js
throw err;

Error: Cannot find module '/home/treehouse/workspace/app.js'

Why hasn't this course been updated. This is so frustrating. Please help as I am stuck here and unable to learn anything from this.


where is your app.js file located? And could you provide a snapshot of your workspace?
