error Couldn't find a package.json file in "/opt/render/project/src"

Why is it showing this error Couldn’t find a package.json file in “/opt/render/project/src” ?
My package.json file is:
“dependencies”: {
“cors”: “^2.8.5”,
“dotenv”: “^16.3.1”,
“express”: “^4.18.1”,
“mysql”: “^2.18.1”,
“mysql2”: “^3.6.5”,
“nodemon”: “^2.0.19”
“name”: “backend”,
“version”: “1.0.0”,
“main”: “index.js”,
“type”: “module”,
“scripts”: {
“start”: “node index.js”
“keywords”: ,
“author”: “”,
“license”: “ISC”,
“description”: “”


That error would imply the package.json file is not in the root of your repo.

You’ll need to reference the path to the file. Maybe the “Root Directory” setting could help.
