HTTP Question

_http_server.js:192 throw new RangeError(`Invalid status code: ${statusCode}`);

This is my code:

var express = require('express');
var http = require('http');
var redis = require('redis');
var url = require('url');
var client = redis.createClient().setMaxListeners(0);

var app = express();
app.set('port', 3000);

app.get('/*', function(req, res) {
var key = url.parse(req.url).pathname;
client.on('connect', function() {
console.log('connected to redis!');
client.get(key, function(err, reply) {
if( reply == null) {
client.set(key, 1);
client.expire(key, 300);
else {
client.incr(key, function(err, reply) {
console.log('increment value: ' + reply);


http.createServer(app).listen(app.get('port'), function() {

This is my output when I run the file ($ node test.js):
I tried this on my ubuntu machine and it perfectly works. This is what I get on my mac. Could someone explain me why this is happening. Any help would be appreciated.

increment value: 2
throw new RangeError(`Invalid status code: ${statusCode}`);

Answer Source

Http response statuses should be integers. It cannot be strings, objects, array or like that and should begin from 100.

From your code i see that you try to do


Check reply variable. From redis incr response im thinking it's string "OK".

Which is bad.. So to fix it just use

res.sendStatus(reply ? 200 : 500);

Also check this.

And this


If you need to send some JSON or data into front-end just do like this

res.json({thisIsMyNumber: reply});


res.send({thisIsMyNumber: reply});

Hope this helps.
