Error: listen EACCES 0.0.0.0:80 OSx Node.js

0 votes

This is the server.js file:

 var express = require('express');
  var app = express();
   app.use('/', express.static('./'));
    app.listen(80);

I get this error:

$ node server.js
events.js:154
      throw er; // Unhandled 'error' event
      ^

Error: listen EACCES 0.0.0.0:80

I know already, that the Error EACCES means that i don't have access rights to the port 80, but i don't know how to fix this. Any help much appreciated!

Hello @kartik,

Give root access to node and start server on port 80 you can do

sudo node app.js

this will start the server giving permission on port 80

Hope it helps!!

Thank You!!
