MongoError: Can't start mongo server


#1
MongoError: failed to connect to server [localhost:27017] on first connect

I’ve been having this issue for a couple of days since I’ve remember upgrading meteor to 1.4, not sure tho. The problem seems to be mongod is not starting in the meteor exec, I’ve installed mongo externally and ran so I could get my work going, but this is a very unfortunate situation to keep going.

I’m in Windows using Cmder.

Ran out of ideas. What could it be?
Thanks

edit: I’ve reinstalled Meteor, used meteor reset, deleted the local folder, everything that Google could search for

Did you check for apps that’s using that port: 27017?


#3

sure, if there were any, my external mongod wouldn’t even start…

Have you tried

meteor update --all-packages

?
