Cannot install with MongoDB on Windows 10

Technical Support
  • Hello, I'm a first time user trying to install nodebb with mongodb. I've created the nodedb database for mongodb and added the nodebb user, and verified that I can connect with that user through mongoDB, however; after going through all of the steps when I enter node app.js --setup everything runs for quite a while until I get an error stating: 16/11 23:04 [11012] - error: NodeBB could not connect to your Mongo database. Mongo returned the following error: auth f
    ailed
    16/11 23:04 [11012] - warn: NodeBB Setup Aborted.
    MongoError: auth failed

    Any suggestions?

  • I'm in! I was taking the default database name of 0 instead of entering my database name. Doh!

    I'm looking to use Azure CosmosDB mongoDB API with more than 10GB, so I need a shard key to get unlimited storage. Is there anything I have to do with NodeBB for the shard key?

    Also, I couldn't find this anywhere and have no forum experience, but excluding media, how much storage does a moderate forum take up?

    @pichalite said in v1.x.x installs mongodb 2.1.22 and requires 2.1.3:

    @exodo try the install without the ~

    npm i [email protected]

    that's the latest in that minor version.

    seems to work now after a few error commands šŸŒ

    Fixed by reinstalling redis-server.
