@pitaj Followup to last message ... turns out Heroku does not allow access through any other port than the one it gives you. Is this an insurmountable obstacle and I should look into other hosting, or is there a workaround?
Installation on fresh Ubuntu 16
Hey there, I've set up a new instance (Amazon AWS EC2) to install nodeBB. I've been following the instructions here:
and up until the point where it says:
$ mongo -u your_username -p your_password --authenticationDatabase=admin
it seemed to work fine (for a change, in my case). I've tried the username for mongoDB as well nodeBB defined just a few steps earlier with the same results.
Here is what I get in return:
MongoDB shell version: 3.2.12
connecting to: test

Mind, this was a 'clean' install. Should I have configured something else before proceeding?
Hints to some guides or concrete how-tos are so very welcome, I'm on it - and similar trys - for several days now. Please help.
