Very new to Meteor.
I am trying to make a separate worker process that uses the ddp and ddp-login packages to log in to my main Meteor app’s Mongo collections over DDP.
It is prompting for credentials.
My questions are:
What are the default credentials Meteor sets up to connect to Mongo?
Where are these located in the Meteor project? Where is the connection string?
How do I change these credentials?
I have been hunting all over my project source and it’s still “magical” to me.
Whell, that’s because it actually is ‘magical’
Meteor comes with its own, build-in version of Mongo
When you don’t specify a mongo-url yourself when starting meteor, meteor will start a private mongo-server, just for itself.
First start meteor with the
meteor in one terminal window/tab. Then, when it’s running, start a second terminal window
You can access mongo from the command line with
meteor mongo , this gives you the mongo-shell.
( It should be running on 127.0.0.1:3001/meteor )
To answer the last part of your question, to connect to a MongoDB other than the builtin one that doesn’t require credentials, set the
MONGO_OPLOG_URL environment variables to a standard MongoDB connect string that tells it where to look, and you can include credentials and other things there.
To further clarify, you can add a username/password to the front of the Mongo connect string by separating those values with semicolons, like this:
