I’m trying to get set up for M220P, Chapter 0. When I click the URL to load mflix, I get:
“Unable to fetch movies” on my HTML page. Back in the terminal, the error is:
dns.resolver.NXDOMAIN: None of DNS query names exist: _mongodb._tcp.., _mongodb._tcp..
Looks like the address isn’t loading?
I’ve read the other entries here and in Stack Overflow regarding this error. It seems to usually be associated with a bad connection string. I have tested my string in Compass, in Mongo shell, AND in Python - the string seems to work everywhere else. Specifically the string is:
MFLIX_DB_URI = mongodb+srv://M220-student:M220firstname.lastname@example.org/myFirstDatabase?retryWrites=true&w=majority
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’ve been beating my head against a wall for about 4 hours now, and not sure what to do next. The really frustrating thing is that I had this working when I started the course last September, but I’ve changed computers, and having no luck this time. Thanks in advance.
