How to Fix Unrecognized command “start” React Native Error

Last Updated on March 15, 2021.

Nowadays, I face very few issues regarding react native command line. But recently when I executed the react-native start command on the terminal I got the following error.

error Unrecognized command "start".
info Run "react-native --help" to see a list of all available commands.

Apparently, this wasn’t a react native issue. It was a mistake from me. I should have executed the npx react-native start command from the project folder and not from the root.

I wrote this blog post because there will be others who make the same mistake. I hope you understood how to fix this react native start issue.
