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
    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!
