Can you share your mongod.conf? It sounds like a config option there isn't quite right.
Cant setup or build on new Ubuntu 16.04 server
Trying to migrate my installation (https://9854.moe) to a external server and it will not build or compete the setup. It always gets stuck here

I dont know where "Killed" is coming from but i have tried making a whole new install and same result
How much memory does your server have? Do you have swap setup?
@baris 512 MB and no swap. The server is from Vultr
My current server is 512 MB with 512 MB Swap. That server is a VMware VM on my ESXi Server
Try setting some swap, the build process can consume more than 512mb memory and that would cause the process to be killed.
@baris That seems to have solved it, Thanks a lot.
