Error while running the test script npm test -t db-connection

I need help to fix this specific error.


So first question, did you rename your environment file to .env from say dotenv_win ?

If yes, is that .env file sitting in your mflix directory?

(Note - the .git folder will not be in your directory, I was using git during this course to improve my GIT/Pull Requests and Git Projects understanding)

Assuming that is ok. Does your connection string within .env for MFLIX_DB have your usename and password in it, and does it match the username and password you set up in Atlas (Assuming you are using Atlas).


Thank you very much. It was an authentication problem because I didn’t specify the password in the URI string properly.
