MongoDB and Mongoose - Install and Set Up Mongoose

I am not sure why is this not working.
I might be having issue in connecting it to the database but even if that’s the problem why am I not passing package.json test case

Challenge: MongoDB and Mongoose - Install and Set Up Mongoose

Link to the challenge:


This is not the correct syntax. The challenge specifies exactly what is required. You’re missing something.

OK, so now this is what happens

You should have your MONGO_URI stored in your .env file. DO NOT include it in your publicly visible code.

The format of the URI should be similar to this:

You should only need to insert your password, as all other fields should already be filled in for you.

NOTE: If your password contains any of these special characters, you will need to use percent encoding: : / ? # [ ] @

Thanks a ton, was stuck on this for hours.

Is it your replit sign in password?

No, you need to follow the instructions which are linked in the challenge description:

These instructions will help you to set up a MongDB Atlas account with a unique username and password which you can then use to create your URI, to be used to connect to your database cluster from repl (or elsewhere).
