I have just installed MongoDB thru homebrew, but I got this error when trying to open mongodb shell after the installation. Below is the error stracktrace.
MongoDB shell version: 3.2.6 connecting to: test 2016-05-29T22:57:35.930+0700 W NETWORK [thread1] Failed to connect to 127.0.0.1:27017, reason: errno:61 Connection refused 2016-05-29T22:57:35.931+0700 E QUERY [thread1] Error: couldn't connect to server 127.0.0.1:27017, connection attempt failed : connect@src/mongo/shell/mongo.js:229:14 @(connect):1:6 exception: connect failed
This error caused by the mongodb service not yet started. I fixed this by starting the service following this command.
$ brew services start mongodb
