Content-Type Builder error "The autoReload feature is required to use this plugin" in a fresh local instal?

[details=“System Information”]

  • Strapi Version: 3.4.6
  • Operating System: macOS Catalina V 10.15.7
  • Database: sqlite
  • Node Version: 14.18.1
  • NPM Version: 6.14.15
  • Yarn Version:

When I did a fresh install of Strapi and then logged in for the first time using my Terminal - everything was working fine. I then simply stopped the server on Terminal and used “code .” to open my files on VS and as per recommendation given I upgraded Strapi from v3.4.6 to v3.6.8 before doing anything just to make sure that I get the latest updates before I start. Then used the integrated terminal to “npm start develop” to start configuring my collections only to get this error “The autoReload feature is required to use this plugin”!!

I thought I did something wrong - so not to fuss about it I simply used “rm -r” to remove all Strapi folder and decided to try again. Only now I am also getting the same error!!!

Kindly request help…what am I doing wrong?

Found a post online suggesting to run the dev server using npx strapi dev - I did and everything worked.

How can I restart the server if my project is on the digital ocean
