// When I execute node bot.js it’s error, anyone can help me?


Just poking into the dark because you didn’t provide the source code to the error in “events.js” but guessing you are trying to use a port thats already occupied. Solution would be to not try to use that port if something else is already occupying it :sunglasses:
