As my title explains I am getting the following error:


  "errorMessage": "Cannot find module 'index'",

  "errorType": "Error",

  "stackTrace": [

    "Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:338:15)",

    "Function.Module._load (module.js:280:25)",

    "Module.require (module.js:364:17)",

    "require (module.js:380:17)"



I have tried both solutions provided in creating-a-lambda-function-in-aws-from-zip-file and simple-node-js-example-in-aws-lambda

My config currently looks like:


and my file structure is: 


and my index.js handler function looks like :

exports.handler = function(event, context) {

What else could be causing this issue aside from what was stated in those two answers above? I have tried both solutions and I have also allocated more memory to the function just incase that's why it couldn't run.

For the sake of trying, I created an even simpler version of my original code and it looked like this:

var Q = require('q');

var AWS = require('aws-sdk');

var validate = require('lambduh-validate');

var Lambda = new AWS.Lambda();

var S3 = new AWS.S3();


theHandler = function (event, context) {

  console.log =('nothing');


exports.handler = theHandler();

And yet still does not work with the same error?

Instead of zipping the folder or the directory, ZIP the file contents of the folder lambda_create_timelapse and upload it.
