I installed mongoldb using the one-click installer. I changed the config bind-ip and commented it out (to allow it to accept any connection). Then I wanted to restart to make the changes take effect, so I did the following:

root@mongo:~# mongo
MongoDB shell version: 3.0.0
connecting to: test
> use admin
switched to db admin
> db.shutdownServer();

Then I expected it to try and reconnect, however this happened:

2015-04-05T11:36:13.492-0400 I NETWORK  DBClientCursor::init call() failed
server should be down...
2015-04-05T11:36:13.495-0400 I NETWORK  trying reconnect to 127.0.0.1:27017 (127.0.0.1) failed

How can I restart my mongod process?

You can start MongoDB by running the following command as root:

sudo service mongod start
  • Thanks, this worked perfectly :)

    • HI @neiljny, after changing the config bind-ip and commented it out, I could connect to the server ip with port 27017 but the authorization failed using the username (root) and server password (which I use to SSH connect via terminal). I don’t know where I’m wrong. I use Robomongo btw
