Take a look
.meteor/local/db dir – check if there is a
If there is, check its contents – it should be empty.
If its not empty, it means MongoDB wasn’t
gracefully shutdown or something.
Try deleting this file (or deleting its contents) and running Meteor again.
rm -f .meteor/local/db/mongod.lock
meteor reset that finally fixed it for me but I also did…
rm -rf node_modules/
NOTE: Backup your database first! This will delete your mongo database.
In my experience (we build, test and deploy all our meteor apps on windows) this is 99% of the time because of Windows Defender or another antivirus.
choco.exe to the exclusions fixes most windows problems
Hi, same with Meteor 1.8. windows 10
Thanks to @rafialikhan, with a separate mongodb it’s work, but why ???
I’m having the same problem at the moment. (Meteor 1.8)
I launch my app with meteor, it worked, i stopped it, and restart it with meteor.
And now the Starting the app is stuck
meteor reset fixes the problem but i need to execute it everytime before using meteor to launch the app.
It’s not a viable solution…
Process to reproduce the problem:
meteor create test
meteor // App is working
Ctrl+C // Stopping the app
meteor // Stuck at Starting your app
Fixed the problem on Meteor 1.8 / Windows 10.
I installed my Meteor using the installer from here: https://install.meteor.com/windows
I tried to reinstall it with the same installer, the problem persisted.
So i decided to reinstall meteor using chocolatey (the way meteor.com tells us).
I just had to use meteor reset the first time and now it’s working fine !
TL;DR: Reinstall meteor using chocolatey and use
meteor reset before the first run.
Thanks, it works with choco!
I had this issue on meteor 1.8 with windows 10 and I refuse to install chocolatey for several reasons.
Anyway I was having this error with every app: custom, new, tutorial and official example apps.
I simply have to remove .meteor\local\db\METEOR-PORT before running meteor, this solved the problem for every app.
While trying to solve the problem I tried :
set METEOR_PROFILE = 1
set METEOR_LOG = debug
After I tried it, I have many problems and no longer works.
after that I tried downloading meteor from ((https://s3.amazonaws.com/meteor-windows/InstallMeteor.exe) meteor is never worked, So uninstall it and
I tried downloading from chocolatey and this is what I have when I try to create a new application
please help me
--force option should be used as:
choco install meteor --force
Ensure you install Meteor with
administrator capability (for example,
PowerShell run as Administrator).
Ensure you run Meteor (any
meteor commands) as your user, not Administrator.
Can somebody help me with this error
I m learning meteor and it’s my first application
