I'm getting Internal Server Error – 500 when i run the app.

It works fine locally.

The logs dont seem to show any major issues, it cant locate the home page it seems, i had this locally as just (home) – tried ./home and home.ejs to see if it was something like that but no luck.

Is it a routing issue? Do i need to update something from the start off?

here is the package.json

  "name": "jjpackage",
  "engines": {
    "node": ">=12.0.0"
  "repository": {
    "type": "git",
    "url": ""

  "devDependencies": {},
  "scripts": {
    "test": "echo \"Error: no test specified\" && exit 1",
    "start": "node server.js",
    "dev ": "nodemon server.js"

Below is the log if that helps
