I followed this thread to a tee and I still get the [Error]

This is my last sequence.

[SOLVED] Problem to serve an app in ionic1 with installed Ionic CLI v3
#2

doesn’t sound like a project directory but a user directory.
Where did you create your Ionic project?


#3

It was built on a different machine and pushed to git. I pulled it from a git repository.


#4

But not directly to that folder, right?


#5

Yes that is correct.


#6

You must cd into the project directory. It’s probably named whatever the git repo is.


#7

I’m also having this same problem
When I try to create a new project using CLI template example “ionic start myApp blank”, then I try to open the project with “ionic serve” and it shows this errp:

[ERROR] Sorry! ionic servicer only be run in an Ionic project directory

    If this is a project you would like to integrate with Ionic, create an ionic.config.json file.
