Challenge: MongoDB and Mongoose - Create and Save a Record of a Model

Link to the challenge:

does any other method from “myApp.js” works from “server.js”? such as : findPersonById, createAndSavePerson?

How do I know if they work or not work (sorry I am pretty new to this). I have completed the challenge for those two already and it was successful if thats what you are asking.

i actually havent gone through this fcc curriculum as of yet, but is your Person data model correct?! try something with an array of plain “String” without that unique Index field, see if that solves it or not, happy learning :slight_smile:
