Hello Guys, I'm a newbie in ReactJs and I try to create a project sample by using the command:

npx create-react-app react-sample

And I try to run the project by using the command npm run start but I get an exception throw: Error error:0308010C:digital envelope routines::unsupported.

Below is my environment:

  1. Node version 17.2.0.
  2. NPM's version 8.1.41.
  3. OS: Window 11
  4. Visual code

I really didn't understand, I learn and follow a video on youtube. Anyone can explain and solved help me?

Thanks in advance!

    I got the same error one month ago.  Not sure about the solution, you can try:

    1. Downgrade Node version to 16.3.1

     2. Run npm run start to start running your app.

    I hope it solves for you.

    Please go to In your package.json and change this line:

    "start": "react-scripts start"


    "start": "react-scripts --openssl-legacy-provider start"

    It really worked for me.
