Starting Browsersync for other projects now starts local Internet Computer environment

This happens when I attempt to run the npm watch command for browser sync on a non-IC project (from the project directory)

localhost:3000 now shows

… instead of the project I intended to load up.

Has anyone encountered this yet and know how to address it before I do too much digging?

DFX uses port 8000 for its server when dfx start is running. You may want to specify another port for your other application, such as 3000 or 8080

Thanks, I see exactly what’s going on now!

…the address I was accessing was on port 3000 but forgot browsersync was proxying port 8000 where my local IC environment was still running.
