common.gypi not found error in node.js

I am trying to "node-gyp configure" to try to get the ms sql server driver. However, initially it said binding.gypi was missing or something to that effect. Now however it is saying common.gypi not found. So I created a text document relabelled it as common.gypi and pasted the code from the file common.gypi that I found in the github repository into the file and saved it and closed it and ran "node-gyp configure". This is the output.

I've had luck with:

rm -rf ~/.node_gyp cd myAwesomeProject npm install npm rebuild

when switching between node 4 and 0.12.4


Seems to be a common issue these days.

You can check https://github.com/TooTallNate/node-gyp/issues/313 and https://github.com/TooTallNate/node-gyp/issues/376 to see if any of these solutions solve your issue.

Particularly, you can:

  • Remove old dir ~/.node_gyp and run npm install

  • Copy an older version (ex: ~/.node-gyp/0.10.11/) to the complying path.

  • Copy the latest version to the complying path.
