Aborting after fassert() failure

Hi everyone,

First time installer and user of the MongoDB here. I’m currently in a web development course where we’re learning about databases. I’ve installed the MongoDB through Ubuntu, but whenever I try to run mongod I keep getting a " Aborting after fassert() failure". I already tried to find a solution through JIRA (https://jira.mongodb.org/browse/SERVER-51860), but Mr. Edwin Zhou could not help me further and directed me to the community.

I hope you can find out what I did wrong / what’s going wrong on my system. Thanks in advance!


Have you completed all the steps of instructions.txt like dirpath creation and change permissions?
Make sure your dbpath is not on a shared directory
Make sure no other mongod running on same port
It says wt files exist.Did you try to empty the dir and try again
When you run mongod without any parmeters it tries to bring mongod on default port 27017 and default path /data/db

For sake of testing try to bring it up on a different dbpath say your home dir where yu can read/write
mongod --port 28000 --dbpath full_path_of_your_homedir
