Ticket : Connection : npm start error

When I run this:

npm start

I get:

Does anybody has an idea what’s going on?

Thanks in advance,


Please share the connection string that you have used.

Also, make sure your IP is whitelisted and are accepting connections from your system. If you are working from your office machine, try using your personal machine if that works.


Same here. I am receiving the same error…(attached file).

Per instructions, I have set the whitelist to ‘Allow Access from Anywhere’.

my connect string: mongodb+srv://m220student:m220password@mflix-*****

What am I doing wrong?

I know what I did. I manually renamed the .env file instead of using the appropriate command given. I used the command to rename and re-ran the ‘npm start’ command. The app is now working. :=))
