I try to connect to a managed MongoDB from an Express/NodeJS component hosted in Digital Ocean apps. The MongoDB database is added as component to the app. This created a DATABASE_URL env variable and I’m using that.
But my express app crashes with
MongoServerSelectionError: self signed certificate in certificate chain
What could cause that? I can connect from MongoDB compass, but that is a different connection string. (with certificate)
