How To Use Json-server | Getting 404 For Local Db.json

- 1 answer

I'm pretty sure doing everything correctly. I'm using these version:

"axios": "^0.24.0",
"json-server": "^0.17.0",

I've followed the official doc. I've db.json in the root folder itself.

{
"users": [
    {
      "ID": 1,
      "Username": "mike",
      "Password": "User1Password"
    },
    {
      "ID": 2,
      "Username": "robert",
      "Password": "User2Password"
    }
  ]
}

I'm running json-server with this command: json-server --watch db.json --port 4000

Whenever I hit http://localhost:4000/users I'm served with this:

  \{^_^}/ hi!

  Loading db.json
  Done

  Resources
  http://localhost:4000/posts
  http://localhost:4000/comments
  http://localhost:4000/profile

  Home
  http://localhost:4000

  Type s + enter at any time to create a snapshot of the database
  Watching...

  GET /users 404 4.800 ms - 2

But rest of the end points like:

http://localhost:4000/posts
http://localhost:4000/comments
http://localhost:4000/profile

are working absolutely fine. Please help.

Answer

According to @user2740650
You said db.json is in src folder. What matters is that it's in the same folder where you started the server. It sounds like it created a default db.json somewhere else and is using that.

Second Scenario
move your db.json file into the Public folder and calling it by: axios.get('db.json') .then(//...)
