Hi guys,

Our service contains both mongodb and mongod service. We used to run mongod service (sudo service mongod start) however recently when re run mongod service, we got the error above.

However this problem didn't happen when we run mongodB service .

This is the mongod.conf file. Wonder who can give me some advice? Thanks!

storage:
  smallFiles: true
  dbPath: /var/lib/mongodb
  journal:
    enabled: true

systemLog:
  destination: file
  logAppend: true
  path: /var/log/mongodb/mongod.log

net:
  port: 27017
  bindIp: [127.0.0.1,X.X.X.X]

replSet=spof
replication:
        replSetName: rs0

Try the following:

sudo rm /var/lib/mongodb/mongod.lock
sudo mongod --repair
sudo service mongod start
sudo service mongod status

Double check you've not got conflicting rules in iptables.

Double check /etc/mongod.conf and check bind_ip = 0.0.0.0 to allow external connections.

It might be due to permission issues with your db directory (dbPath). You can try giving appropriate permission to your directory. Try the following steps:

  1. Give permission to /var/lib/mongodb directory.

    sudo chmod -R 0777 /var/lib/mongodb
    
  2. Try to start mongod service.

    sudo service mongod start
    
  3. Check status of mongod service.

    sudo service mongod status
    
  • changing permissions isn't correct , want to change owner to be mongodb user – Mike Q May 7 '19 at 20:31

Check logs:

cat /var/log/mongodb/mongod.log

if you know the connection command try it:

mongo "mongodb://localhost/graylog"

If you see a core dump from this command (as root) look into changing permissions on /var/lib/mongodb ( change recursive ownership to mongodb:mongodb )

/usr/bin/mongod --config /etc/mongod.conf

Got it fixed by backup and completely removing Mongo data directory (in my case /var/lib/mongodb/). And after that, recreate database path using :

sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/mongodb/

sudo chown -R mongodb:mongodb /var/lib/mongodb/

You may try the following:

  1. remove the .lock file. sudo rm /var/lib/mongodb/mongod.lock

  2. grant the permission sudo chown -R mongodb:mongodb /var/lib/mongodb

  3. restart server sudo service mongod start

The format of bindIp is not correct.

If you want to have multiple IPs, you should do it like this:

net:
  port: 27017
  bindIp: 127.0.0.1,X.X.X.X

    Hello and welcome to AskUbuntu! Looks like the correct format is indeed what the OP has: bindIp = [127.0.0.1, 192.168.0.155, 10.0.0.155]. You might want to edit the answer. – Mr Shunz Sep 14 '18 at 9:32
