Currently I am unable to start mongodb with the usual command
sudo service mongodb start. When I do that, I get something like:
mongodb start/running, process 23387
however no such process is subsequently running, and the mongodb log doesn't show anything new. mongodb DOES however start on reboot, and it can be stopped with
sudo service mongodb stop.
It's more of an inconvenience than a game stopper, but I'm intrigued - what's going on??
