Challenge while Connecting to MONGOD

Following the video for M103:1, while connecting to MONGOD, he used two command-line terminals, when the first line got frozen, he opened another and continued. image

But using Windows OS, the system will keep telling you that "Another MONGOD instance is already running on the /data/db directory, terminating"


Please how do I handle this…thanks

Hey @Onyeka_16206, in the lecture, the first one is mongod and the second is mongo. Different processes.

Thank you so much @007_jb … I have been on this for hours, trying to figure it out myself.
It has worked.

No problem! It can be confusing because the commands look very similar.
