JavaScript Build a Simple Dynamic Site with Node.js Creating a Simple Server in Node.js Preparing & Planning

Getting to the correct documentation on nodejs.org

Hello there, I have noticed that either the pathway to the documentation for http.createServer([requestListener]) has changed, or I'm in the wrong place. from the nodejs.org main page, I went to: docs>v6.2.1 API>HTTP>(scroll almost to the bottom of the list)>http.createServer([requestListener]) . Is this where I need to be? Thanks! Rosalind

Yes, that seems like the correct reference to http.createServer in the documentation. I also noticed that there is a guide on nodejs.org called Anatomy of an HTTP Transaction which goes into more depth about the process of Node.js HTTP handling and explains what http.createServer does in this process. Hope this helps.
