If it helps anyone, if you happen to have this error, make sure you wrapped
MLAB_URI between quotes (or double quotes).
.env file —>
Tell us what’s happening:
I just “forked” Exercise Tracker project in glitch and there is already an error.
MongoError: failed to connect to server [localhost:27017] on first connect [MongoError: connect ECONNREFUSED 127.0.0.1:27017]
I think it’s related to the following bit of code:
mongoose.connect(process.env.MLAB_URI || 'mongodb://localhost/exercise-track' )
- I already declared
- I tried deleting
- The error appears as soon as I fork the project. You can easily try yourselves following this link or “link to the challenge” below.
