Thanks a lot for your help in advanced!

Hey Ollie!

Error: MONGO_URL must be set in environment

This means that your database URL isn’t set up. On Modulus, if you click on your application and then locate the “Administration” tab on the left, scroll down until you see the Environment Variables table. In there, you will need to add a variable called MONGO_URL with a value equal to the connection string of your database.

If you don’t have a database setup, you can add one on Modulus. Once you do, they will provide you with the connection string that you can place in the table following the instructions above.

Hi, first of all thanks a lot for helping!

Second, i added my external db string in the format of a mongolab db and that error has gone, now i am getting this error, any idea? I have a domain setup and working so I’m guessing it isn’t that,

Thanks again!

Don’t worry, figured that one out, just setup up the ROOT_URL in the environment variables also, all working now! Thanks
