I have paid membership and downloaded this project. After npm install and node app.js, it returns the following error:

Does anyone know what's wrong?

/Users/Thomas/Desktop/mean-stack-tutorial-01$ node app.js 


        process.nextTick(function() { throw err; })


MongoError: failed to connect to server [localhost:27017] on first connect

Edit 1: Following the comments, I just installed mongo via brew, and did brew services start mongodb and then mongo:

/Users/Thomas$ mongo MongoDB shell version v3.4.1 connecting to: mongodb:// MongoDB server version: 3.4.1 Server has startup warnings: 2017-01-12T19:53:01.868+0800 I CONTROL [initandlisten] 2017-01-12T19:53:01.869+0800 I CONTROL [initandlisten] ** WARNING: Access control is not enabled for the database. 2017-01-12T19:53:01.869+0800 I CONTROL [initandlisten] ** Read and write access to data and configuration is unrestricted. 2017-01-12T19:53:01.869+0800 I CONTROL [initandlisten]

Then I did

Then in another terminal, I did node app.js, which hangs (and does not print anything). Then I does http://localhost:28017 in a browser, it seems to work:

enter image description here

However, how could I see the website?

Edit 2:

The normal process is

  1. install mongo

  2. brew services start mongodb in a terminal

  3. mongo & (assume we use the default folder /data/db/)

  4. npm start

  5. see e.g., bin/www for the port number, then use localhost:the_port_number in a browser

The main thing is that you haven't started your mongo database. First, you need to install mongo as per your OS https://docs.mongodb.com/v3.0/tutorial/ then follow instructions mentioned on this site: https://docs.mongodb.com/v3.0/tutorial/getting-started-with-the-mongo-shell/

cd mongod --dbpath 

and then start your node server.

Hope this helps!
