Migrating to a new DB host - Can't connect, undefined

  • We are attempting to move our MongoDB install to a different server. I set that up and used mongorestore to restore a mongodump from the previous server. After that I changed the config.json to point to the new host, and I tried to connect.

    When running node app.js I get:

    27/4 16:31 [8274] - error:  err=socketHandler, trace=, bin=undefined, sizeOfMessage=1347703880, bytesRead=undefined, stubBuffer=undefined

    What am I missing here?

  • Can anyone help here? I've not been able to figure anything out past this point.



Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
