Meteor mongo doesn't see local database #4124

Meteor mongo doesn't see local database #4124

As states in title, meteor mongo leaves error:

mongo: Meteor isn't running a local MongoDB server.

This command only works while Meteor is running your application locally. Start
your application first. (This error will also occur if you asked Meteor to use
a different MongoDB server with $MONGO_URL when you ran your application.)

If you're trying to connect to the database of an app you deployed with
'meteor deploy', specify your site's name with this command.

I found a way around, but I just don't know why after update meteor mongo stopped working.

My way:

apt-get install mongodb-clients
mongo localhost:3001/meteor

Meaning that local database is visible, just not for meteor mongo

Yes, this is a duplicate of #4115, which @stubailo was in the process of releasing to fix on Friday. It appears that the last stage or two of the release process never happened. Trying to get in touch with him to find out why, since many users are hitting this.

@glasser glasser closed this as completed Apr 5, 2015
