Error message while starting the mongoDB service. Error:

Permission denied @ rb_sysopen - /Users/syedahmed/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.mongodb-community.plist

I installed/reinstall the mongoDB couple times. But I am getting same problem

" error : permission denied"

I am using the community@4.2 edition in Mac OS Mojave 10.14

I have tried different ways after reading suggestions in stack overflow but nothing has worked.

I have installed following the instruction from mongoDB.

The services doesn't start.

how to config the username and password using config? I am not sure.

while installing from brew it did not ask for config any password or username.

brew services start mongodb-community@4.2

if I start service typing just: mongo Following error message comes:

  • is this port number available: Error connecting to 127.0.0.1:27017 :: caused by :: Connection refused – Marcello Miorelli Sep 2 at 17:43
  • I am using the MacOS Mojave 10.14.5. I have installed using the brew. It goes to default folder. Even if you try with other version it also doesn't allow to access. – Syed Ahmed Sep 2 at 21:14

My solution is here:

  1. Make a directory as - sudo mkdir -p /data/db
  2. That will make a directory named as db and than try to start with commands - sudo mongod

use code below before mongo

sudo brew services start mongodb-community
