I was in trouble with deleting the users in mongodb3.6.

I created a user with:

db.createUser({ user: "username" , pwd: "password", roles: ["root"]})

And I deleted it with:


Also in mongodb.conf I commented :

auth = true

However, afer restarting mongo, I tried to check the dbs and I got an error like this: enter image description here

How could I solve this problem?

  • You enabled authorization and re-started mongod. So now you need to get authenticated to check the dbs.

  • I'm sorry. I think I made a mistake when describe the problem that I should say I commented the statement about the authentication, and I still can't solve the problem now.

  • This scenario is perfectly working fine for me. Please check mongod.log for any useful information.
