Error when run "npm start"

Hi, Please help me with this, I keep getting this error when run "npm start" after "npm install". I have tried to update or lower webpack versions as well but there are different errors came up.

npm start

react-redux-course@1.0.0 prestart C:\Users\Nam Tran\Documents\GitHub\react-redux-course npm run lint

react-redux-course@1.0.0 lint C:\Users\Nam Tran\Documents\GitHub\react-redux-course eslint ./src/*/.{js, jsx} --fix

react-redux-course@1.0.0 start C:\Users\Nam Tran\Documents\GitHub\react-redux-course webpack-dev-server --progress --inline --hot

I would try and go through the first part of the video setting up the index.js and what not again, can not tell by your code but it has to be something you did wrong setting up.

Hi Nam,

it seems like there is an older webpack config in your project. Webpack changed the way loaders are called in the config file. Instead of "loaders" you should try to name your property "rules".

See this StackOverflow post: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/49370849/configuration-module-has-an-unknown-property-loaders

Hopefully this helps you solve your problem! Happy coding!
