In my ongoing effort to play with Vue.js, I’ve been attempting to run the command
I was looking for a config file with a hostname defined. There isn’t one. It uses the contents of /etc/hostname.
hostname showed my hostname as kraken. But according to /etc/hostname, it was kraken.kjcoop.com. NPM was trying to bind to kjcoop.com’s IP address.
There’s no reason the hostname had to include kjcoop.com. I originally took to putting it in the hostname when I first registered the domain name in 1998 because I thought it was neat. I never got out of the habit because until [longer ago than I care to admit], it never caused me problems.
