M103 Ch.1 Lab 2: Configuration File

I am getting back:
Aborted (core dumped)
When trying to run my configuration:

vagrant@m103:~/data$ vagrant@m103:~/data$ mongod -f mongod.cfg

What is the path to the config file, dbpafh and logpath? Also check ps -ef | grep [m]ongo for running instances.

My path to the config file:


Result of ps -ef | grep [m]ongo


Also when I try running the config file from the home directory it just sits on a blinking cursor


vim shouldn’t be causing any interference, but just to be 100% sure, kill those vim sessions.

Here are some things in your config file that need fixing:

  1. journal.enabled - not a requirement in this lab
  2. systemLog.path - has two spaces after the colon. Potentially one of the culprits.
  3. net.bindIp - has no space after the colon. Potentially one of the culprits.
  4. net.bindIp - put localhost first

Also make sure that /data/db exists.

Lastly, to keep in-line with forum guidelines (i.e. not posting potential answers to labs), please remove the screenshot of your config file from your last post.

Thank you very much for the response, I’ll update on how it works out once I get home and on my computer

So I went back through the whole process to make sure I had even done the first lab correctly, I went through the authentication process again and added the user, it had shown that I already added the user which I already figured I did. I also included the steps that you provided and everything worked fine! Thank you for the help I really appreciate it! :pray:
