Meteor shell does not respect MONGO_URL


#1

HI - I am running my production app with a MONGO_URL environment variable. I need to connect to it using the meteor shell. I cannot get the meteor shell command to respect the MONGO_URL environment variable. Instead, every time I start mongo shell I get the response “Server unavailable (waiting to reconnect)”.

Sincerely, Kyle

I was incorrect about this. I had been running the production server as one user and the shell command as another—this does not work. It was not the MONGO_URL handling at fault.
