How to connect two droplets running the same Node.js app to a single MongoDB droplet

October 18, 2017 187 views
MongoDB Node.js Ubuntu 16.04

I want to be able to have 2 node.js droplets behind a load balancer and have them both connect to the same MongoDB droplet/database. I want to have it so users will not notice if they are on droplet A or droplet B. How would I set this up/ put it in node.js code? I have this as my mongodb connect:

mongoose.connect(mongodb://localhost/asset-management-v1);

I know I would need to change localhost to the droplet IP but other than that is there any setup I need to do or custom code?
