there is a project that’s been running perfectly for a few months now, able to run npm run serve with no problem. there is to terminate and run the command again whenever I switch networks, but that has never been a problem and the server could always start again.
Until now - no matter what I do I can’t get the server to start. I get this error:
npm run serve
\> email@example.com serve D:\workspace\[PROJECT]
\> vue-cli-service serve
INFO Starting development server…

The last time I got this message was when I forgot to set the .env files, but this is a previously working copy with all necessary files set, and no changes since the last working run.
I’ve even tried pulling a fresh copy of the repo, running npm i and setting all env files but it still fails.
npm run lint and npm run build can still work, only npm run serve.
Am I missing anything?
The problem was again with the .env files. My vue.config.js was trying to access a previously set environment variable that had since been removed.
Only strange thing was that there weren’t any problems up til now?
