Challenge: Exercise Tracker

It looks like you created your own project on Glitch instead of remixing the FCC boilerplate. This means you’re missing essential code and files that allow the tests to run.

I create new app on glitch using the provided link of FCC, and didn’t change any thing just add my own code, but when I try to submit new user I get 404 error:

POST https://bow-icy-snickerdoodle.glitch.me/api/exercise/new-user 404

this is my glitch: https://glitch.com/edit/#!/bow-icy-snickerdoodle

This middleware is kicking in before any of your code.

I put it after app=express() but the main page gives me : not found message. and if I delete it and submit new user the page is hanged.
I found this error in glitch log:

(node:17213) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Unhandled promise rejection (rejection id: 1): MongooseServerSelectionError: connect ECONNREFUSED

I have no .env file in my glitch app… is that the reason ???

Yup. Your .env file will hold your MongoDB URI, which is what allows your app to connect to your database.

Yes , I missed the .env file, I thought it was hidden as it contains FCC mongo test uri. I created .env file one and inserted my own uri variable.
Thank you.
