But your code is separated from the database. Meteor.js just installs MongoDB as part of it’s setup. From what I can see, it’s installed on port 3001.

I don’t know what mongo_url is, but I guess it’s the configuration parameter in Meteor.js, so in that case, it would be mongodb://localhost:27017/myproject or however you have setup your MongoDB - so if you used authentication in the setup, your url changes to mongodb://username:password@localhost:27017/myproject.

You would probably find much better help in the forums of Meteor: https://forums.meteor.com/

Hi @flameuzumo MongoDB is by default listening on localhost port 27017, so your “url” is normally:

localhost:27017
