I have whitelisted the ip and allowed admin access to my user. The password is correct. I’ve copypasted the code solution from “Get a hint” but it’s not working. I’ve copypasted the url to the database.

Wow, thank you! Why wouldn’t they provide that in the string to copy paste :frowning:

:smiley: you might have heard about books Learn javascript hard way :rofl:, I learned it hardway spending days to know that the connection string needs a database name, even people don’t know what the name of database is, to be honest backend challenges have too many issues, when I was doing timestamp project it never passed on my pc after hours of searching I found that trying on mobile phone will make it pass and that was it but unfortunately I ignored this knowledge first to wander for hours anyway cheers! you got it :innocent:

The challenge was accepted, but when I go and check the database, it says I have the collection Cluster0.people, but there’s nothing inside it.
