Digital Ocean Server Reset, NodeJS Not Working!

  • Posted February 15, 2014

Hi there, So recently my DO droplet was reset due to some creation problem in the NYC1 area. My droplet was running (an analytics software) and now it gives me this error:

Express 500 Error: failed to connect to [localhost:27017] at null. (/root/countly/frontend/express/node_modules/mongoskin/node_modules/mongodb/lib/mongodb/connection/server.js:569:74) at EventEmitter.emit (events.js:106:17) at null. (/root/countly/frontend/express/node_modules/mongoskin/node_modules/mongodb/lib/mongodb/connection/connection_pool.js:139:15) at EventEmitter.emit (events.js:98:17) at Socket. (/root/countly/frontend/express/node_modules/mongoskin/node_modules/mongodb/lib/mongodb/connection/connection.js:475:10) at Socket.EventEmitter.emit (events.js:95:17) at net.js:441:14 at process._tickCallback (node.js:415:13)

How can I fix this? Any help is appreciated!

Looks like your mongodb is down. Probably mongodb had an unclean shutdown so you will need to start mongod with the repair option. Check this link for details:
