"TypeError: Cannot read property 'config' of undefined" in dotenv


I’m trying to get access to my .env file via dotenv module, but I’m getting the below error

TypeError: Cannot read property 'config' of undefined

I have dotenv installed in node_modules and package.json, my .env file is in the root folder, and I think everything is written correctly, but it doesn’t work for some reason. I have tried reinstalling the module, didn’t help


try the following :

require('dotenv').config({path: __dirname + '/.env'})

In Typescript

import * as dotenv from 'dotenv'
dotenv.config({path: __dirname + '/.env'})
