Database imported by the project is not the same as the course

Database imported by the project is not the same as the course.

Can you expand on this? There was a small dataset change that impacted the number of documents imported but he course handouts have been updated to reflect this.

Before any more “I have the same problem posts” appear, it would be strongly advised that you download the course content again, and run the mongorestore just as prescribed in the initial lessons. NOTE the --drop option is not optional, since “fresh” data is the desired effect.

The best course before reporting such problems is to verify you have the latest data. And the best way to do that is “restore again”.


Also note that ALL course data from the “Tickets” for assesment are volatile and self contained to the tests, so nothing you have done to data needs to be retained.

The only data requiring persistence is done in the “upcoming” migrations ticket which has not been completed yet. And even then, you can simply run your corrected migrations script again.
