ReferenceError: command is not defined [DISCORD.JS]

So I am trying to add permissions for one of the commands that my bot is using (Retisy Bot) and I came across this error in the console:

if(command.permissions.length){
ReferenceError: command is not defined

The full code is here:

const { RSA_PKCS1_OAEP_PADDING } = require(‘constants’);

const Discord = require(‘discord.js’);

const client = new Discord.Client();

const prefix = ‘-’;

const fs = require(‘fs’);

client.command = new Discord.Collection();

const commandFiles = fs.readdirSync(’./commands/’).filter(file => file.endsWith(’.js’));

for (const file of commandFiles) {

const command = require(`./commands/${file}`);

client.command.set(command.name, command);

}

const validPermissions = [

"CREATE_INSTANT_INVITE",

"KICK_MEMBERS",

"BAN_MEMBERS",

"ADMINISTRATOR",

"MANAGE_CHANNELS",

"MANAGE_GUILD",

"ADD_REACTIONS",

"VIEW_AUDIT_LOG",

"PRIORITY_SPEAKER",

"STREAM",

"VIEW_CHANNEL",

"SEND_MESSAGES",

"SEND_TTS_MESSAGES",

"MANAGE_MESSAGES",

"EMBED_LINKS",

"ATTACH_FILES",

"READ_MESSAGE_HISTORY",

"MENTION_EVERYONE",

"USE_EXTERNAL_EMOJIS",

"VIEW_GUILD_INSIGHTS",

"CONNECT",

"SPEAK",

"MUTE_MEMBERS",

"DEAFEN_MEMBERS",

"MOVE_MEMBERS",

"USE_VAD",

"CHANGE_NICKNAME",

"MANAGE_NICKNAMES",

"MANAGE_ROLES",

"MANAGE_WEBHOOKS",

"MANAGE_EMOJIS",

]

if(command.permissions.length){

let invalidPerms = []

for (const perm of command.permissions) {

    if (!validPermissions.includes(perm)) {

        return console.log(`Invalid Permissions ${perm}`);

    }

    if (!message.member.hasPermission(perm)) {

        invalidPerms.push(perm);

        break;

    }

}

if (invalidPerms.length) {

    return message.channel.send(`Missing Permissions: ${invalidPerms}`);

}

}

} else if (command === 'mute') {
    client.command.get('mute').execute(message, args);

} else if (command == 'unmute') {
    client.command.get('unmute').execute(message, args);
}

});

Can anyone tell me why I am getting this error? I thought I did everything right but I guess I could use some more insight. Any info helps and if I need to add more for better context just comment below. :slight_smile:

the variable command that you’re using is a scoped variable that you declared here:

which means that the command variable can only be used in that loop.
