Unable to fetch data using axios

System Information
  • Strapi Version: v4.5.2
  • Operating System: macOS
  • Database: Localhost
  • Node Version: 16.13.0
  • NPM Version:
  • Yarn Version: 1.22.18

Thanks in advance for helping me figure this out. What I did:

  • Deployed Strapi Project
  • Deployed NextJs project
  • Installed and setup Axios to fetch data from strapi backend

but continue getting this error:

import axios from "axios";

export async function getServerSideProps(context) {
  const baseUrl = process.env.NEXT_PUBLIC_STRAPI_API_URL;

  try {
    const { data } = await axios.get(`${baseUrl}/users`, {
      headers: {
        Authorization: `bearer ${process.env.NEXT_PUBLIC_FORGEDMART_STRAPI_API_TOKEN}`,
  } catch (error) {

  return {
    props: {
      session: await getSession(context),
