My code is exactly the same as in the video. I am getting the following error when I try to run nodemon..

[nodemon] 1.10.0 [nodemon] to restart at any time, enter rs [nodemon] watching: . [nodemon] starting node --debug src/app.js Error: listen EADDRINUSE :::5858 at Object.exports._errnoException (util.js:953:11) at exports._exceptionWithHostPort (util.js:976:20) at Agent.Server._listen2 (net.js:1253:14) at listen (net.js:1289:10) at Agent.Server.listen (net.js:1385:5) at Object.start (_debug_agent.js:21:9) at startup (node.js:86:44) at node.js:449:3

Post your properly formatted code or a snapshot of your workspace if you'd like someone to check it.

The error "Error: listen EADDRINUSE :::5858" suggests that some other process in your system is already using that port. Locate and terminate the other process, or consider using a different port here.

Do you know what are the commands to locate and terminate the port from running?
