I am trying to connect to
mongodb from my web application using Mongooose. However, I get an
MongoError: auth failed from mongo when I specify the database I want to connect to. If I do not specify the db, then to connection is successful.
It works when using mongo command line and mongodb management tool like Robomongo. Here is what we normally do.
var dbURI = 'mongodb://user:pwd@localhost:27017/dbname'; mongoose.connect(dbURI);
And an error will be like -
MongoError: auth failed at Object.toError...
But I found a solution from MongoDB Node.js Driver. It only needs to add
?authSource=admin in the end of the line.
