Hello there,

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

Also, I have redacted your URI password. This is not to be shared with anyone, as it allows others to read/write to your database.

One thing you could try is removing the single-quotes around the URI value in your .env file.

However, without more information, we can only guess at what the issue is.

Hope this helps
