Problem loading localhost:5000

So I’ve enrolled this exact course 3 times and couldn’t pass the first chapter due to this issue. I followed the instruction step by step and had my app listening on port 5000. However, I couldn’t access it via browser.


My atlas server was properly setup as I could access it through mongo shell.

If you run on linux, start a new terminal and run ss -tlnp | grep [5]000 and share the result.

It looks like either the application was terminated or it is not listening on localhost.

Thanks for the pointer. Seems like something was running on Port 5000. Problem resolved when I switched it to port 9000 and the page now loads.
