Very frustrating. I followed all the lecture instructions to set up the replication.
I created all the folders, files, config files etc. When I started up got this error.
Ok. You just need to run the file without the option “–fork” let’s go back to vi (and I really don’t like to use it), get rid of the --fork option, start up the file and nothing happens. No mongod server, no error, nothing happens.
Then I read all forum topics. I went back to all files and folder structures on this exercise and gave them permission to do ALL. 777.
As I started up the mongod.conf, same error number 1 again. Disable --fork, start the file again. Nothing happens. The mongod.conf file, from the previous lesson is working fine.
I need to understand why. I’m trying for 3 hours to start up one simple set. And I keep imagining how fun I’ll get if I need to install those 50 sets.
