Hi @dann81,

I take it you are following a tutorial and experiencing this issue, is that correct? If so, can you please provide me with the tutorial so that I know what to look at?

Additionally, the error

 connection attempt failed: SocketException: Error connecting to 127.0.0.1:27017 :: caused by :: Connection refused :
connect@src/mongo/shell/mongo.js:374:17

Suggests you were not able to reach the mongodb server. Are you sure it’s running? Can you please try to start it and see if it would work then?
