I am trying to use handlerbars using expressjs to load dynamic content but I encounter this error

Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/home/aman/Documents/Coding/nodejs/expressjs2/views/layouts/main.handlebars'```  This is what I am doing ```app.engine("hbs", expressHbs());

This is what I added in my app.js  main file

app.set("view engine", "hbs"); //Using handlebar engine to load dynamic content
app.set("views", "views"); // By default location is views but you can change it to template```

Hello,

It looks like a user issue, but there's not enough details to be certain.

Does this file exist? Can you show the one including  this "main.handlebars" as well?
