How connect LAMP droplet with MongoDB droplet
Hi, I created a droplet with Ubuntu 14.04 x64 and LAMP where I uploaded a codeigniter framework with working scripts. This works fine because I receive a Codeigniter error.
I also created a droplet with Ubuntu MongoDB 3.0.5 on 14.04.
Now what I want is to connect the Codeigniter framework with that MongoDB. How can I do this? My codeigniter frameworks works local with a local MongoDB so I tried to change the config file of my MongoDB lib but still receive ‘Unable to connect to your database server using the provided settings.’
These are the details from the Codeigniter file:
(I removed confidential information).
// Generally localhost $config['host'] = "[THE IP OF THE MONGODB DROPLET]"; // Generally 27017 $config['port'] = 27017; // The database you want to work on $config['db'] = "[A DATABASE NAME]"; // Required if Mongo is running in auth mode $config['user'] = "root"; $config['pass'] = "[PASSWORD FOR THE ROOT USER]";
