Mongodb not working Need Help ASAP

So I’ve reinstalled and installed mongo multiple times, but it isn’t working.

 sudo systemctl status mongod
● mongod.service - MongoDB Database Server
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/mongod.service; enabled; vendor preset>
     Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sun 2022-07-31 02:01:08 UTC; 4min>
       Docs: https://docs.mongodb.org/manual
   Main PID: 8278 (code=exited, status=14)

Jul 31 02:01:08 ku-node-backend systemd[1]: Started MongoDB Database Server.
Jul 31 02:01:08 ku-node-backend systemd[1]: mongod.service: Main process exited>
Jul 31 02:01:08 ku-node-backend systemd[1]: mongod.service: Failed with result >

I can go into the mongo console.

 mongo

Implicit session: session { "id" : UUID("52ac93f3-defd-4570-84b7-cbe0495b45bc") }

Hello,

Do you see any errors in your MongoDB error log? You can check the log with the following command:

tail -f /var/log/mongodb/mongodb.log

Usually, you could try and remove the lock file and restart the service which in some cases fixes the startup error:

  • Remove the lock file:
sudo rm /var/lib/mongodb/mongod.lock
  • Repair the service:
mongod --repair
  • Start the service:
sudo systemctl start mongodb

Best,

Bobby
