Listening multiple apps (SOLVED)


#1

So I have an npm package that uses app.listen(port) and I have an app.listen(port) in my own file too. Now since this results in trying to listen to the same port twice, it throws the error Error: listen EADDRINUSE :::3000. Removing the listening from the module won’t make that webpage appear. How would I go around this? I can edit the package if that is needed.

const app = require('express')()

app.get("/", function(request, response) {
  response.sendFile(__dirname + '/homepage.html')
})

db.createWebview('1234', process.env.PORT, 'db') // Listens too
app.listen(process.env.PORT) // Listens again

Removing one of the listens will make the other file (html) work.

Sorry if this is confusing

Regards.
