            } else {
            console.log("Please upload pdf, json, txt, csv, png, jpg or jpeg!");
            }
            } catch (error) {
            console.log("Error uploading file: ", error);
            }

Thank you.

Hey @Mahima and welcome to the IPFS forum,

Can you share more information about the output you are getting from the line:

        console.log(document.getElementById("input").files[0]);

Can you share a link to a repository link you can share?

Also I saw you also opened Uncaught (in promise) Error: missing input file(s) - Error while uploading the file using web3Storage - #3 by Mahima. Please avoid creating multiple threads for the same problem.

Sure, I’ll take care of it. Thanks for letting me know.


Here, I sent output of the
console.log(document.getElementById("input").files[0]);

async function fileEvent(){
        var fileInput = document.getElementById("input");
        console.log(document.getElementById("input").files[0]);

        const rootCid = await client.put(fileInput.files[0]);
        console.log(rootCid);
    
        const res = await client.get(rootCid);
        const files = await res.files();

        const url =  URL.createObjectURL(files[0]);
        console.log(url)
        setFile(url)
    }

I tried the above code as well but got the same error:- missing input file(s).

Hey, were you able to resolve this issue? Did you try double-checking the modules you have been importing?

Nope, I am not able to resolve it.
