The starter files aren't behaving as expected...

In the instructions, it says to go to localhost:3000, but the server is listening on localhost:5000. Also, it says I should see the index page, but instead I see the welcome message object. Did I miss something here? I downloaded all the files including the starter files from the restful api lesson, but I didn't actually do that lesson. So maybe I was supposed to do that first.

Hy Danielle Walraven , maybe you are in the api folder? I saw that the back-end, app.js file will start a server at port 5000. The client is listening at port 3000. (When you start the client with npm start in the client folder.) Hope this helps. Have a nice day!
