[Ethereum] HardhatError: HH700: Artifact for contract “Greeter” not found – clarification [Hardhat, openzeppelin]


I keep getting this error when doing: npx hardhat run scripts/sample-script.js –network testnet.

I got an answer "You have named your contract 'Nikola' and not 'Greeter'. The actual file-names only matter for imports." to this issue: HardhatError: HH700: Artifact for contract "Greeter" not found.

But I have trouble fixing it, I deleted the contract greeter and edited greeter.sol to Nikola.sol but the problem remains.

Could someone give a piece of advice on what to do to fix this issue, would really appreciate it. At least clarify, would be great. What should I do to fix it?

Keep in mind that your solidity contract's name has to match, too.

If you try to deploy with

const License = await ethers.getContractFactory('License');

this works

contract License {...}

this doesn't

contract MyLicense {...}
