When starting the node.js http-server, I got this error:

Error: ENOENT, no such file or directory
at Error (native)
at Function.startup.resolveArgv0 (node.js:720:23)
at startup (node.js:63:13)
at node.js:814:3

From the post here, it seems this error can occur if you attempt to start the server in a dir that’s already been deleted. In my case I had renamed a folder that contained the folder where I was attempting to start the server. cd’d up a couple and into the new/renamed folder, and problem solved.
