I have faced some problem after installing MongoDB on my Ubunutu 12.04. Here is the error .
Error: couldn't connect to server 127.0.0.1 shell/mongo.js:84 exception: connect failed
I found some solution on google. Here it is.
sudo rm /var/lib/mongodb/mongod.lock
sudo -u mongodb mongod -f /etc/mongodb.conf --repair
sudo service mongodb start
Please read this for more detail.
- You must run this command as the mongodb user. If you run it as root, then root will own files in /var/lib/mongodb/ that are necessary to run the mongodb daemon and therefore when the daemon trys to run later as the mongodb user, it won’t have permissions to start. In that case you’ll get this error: Unable to create / open lock file for lockfilepath: /var/lib/mongodb/mongod.lock errno:13 Permission denied, terminating.
- On Ubuntu, you must specify the configuration file /etc/mongodb.conf using the -f flag. Otherwise it will look for the data files in the wrong place and you will see the following error: dbpath (/data/db/) does not exist, terminating.
Now you can use Mongo.
Enjoy. Happy Coding 🙂
