Error: DynamoDB is already installed on a path

What's Causing This Error

This error message indicates that the DynamoDB Local installation is already on the specified path. This can happen if you are attempting to install DynamoDB Local on a system where it has already been installed or if you are running the installation command multiple times in the same location without first uninstalling the previous installation.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

There are a couple of ways to solve this issue:

  • First, ensure that you are running the installation command for DynamoDB Local in a location where it has not already been installed.
  • If you are trying to update an existing installation of DynamoDB Local, you will need to uninstall the existing version before installing the new version.
  • If you are trying to run multiple instances of DynamoDB Local on the same machine, you will need to specify a different path for each instance.
  • The error message will appear if you run the installation command multiple times in the same location without first uninstalling the previous installation. In that case, you need to uninstall the previous installation before running the command again.
  • If you are unsure whether DynamoDB Local is installed, you can check the path specified in the error message and see if the files for DynamoDB Local are present there.
