Installing Backend

Good day,

I have been struggling to install npm packages for the ‘backend’ project in The Ultimate React Native Series: Advanced Concepts course.

I have the current latest version of node and npm (v16.14.0 and 8.4.1 repectively) installed.

While trying to install backend’s dependencies etc on command prompt with npm i , these two warnings appear :

a) the package-lock.json file was created with an old version of npm, so supplemental metadata must be fetched from the registry.

b) Unsupported engine :
required: { node: ‘12.6.x’}
current: { node ‘v16.14.0’, npm ‘8.4.1’ }

Thereafter, npm list shows that none of the dependecies were installed.

Would be most grateful if someone could help

Do you know what version of node and npm Mosh uses in the course? You might try using those.
