Update Rocket.Chat

I try to update my Rocket.Chat 0.74.3 to new version 1.0.1.


In the link in this error there is /etc/mongod.conf, I don’t have such file, my file is mongodb.conf so I did

There is problem with mongo, how can I repair this error?

did you proceed on your issue?
Looks like you mongoDB was not able to start after your change.
Did you took a look into the log?

you can try:
systemctl start mongodb
systemctl status monodb

To get some hints.
Best regards

Without logs, we cannot help you:

journalctl -xe mongodb and paste the output here, wrap them in triple backticks like (```) without parenthesis.

Hello @Timmi ,
result of commands is:

Hi @robbyoconnor
I have an error


Hey @zen,

please note that your config file has an error. The problem is the /etc/mongodb.conf file.
Maybe you are able to paste the full error message,
Also the file it self would be great.

Best regards

Hi @Timmi
when I want to check status mongo there is such message:

admin1@chat:~$ systemctl status mongodb

If you want something more such log file please write where I can find it, I have just installed some time ago Rocket.Chat and it works fine, I am not expert in Linux.

Hi @zen

you need to fix you /etc/mongodb.conf file.
Looks like your version does not like:

kwi 30 07:41:37 chat mongod[6668]: Error parsing INI config file: the options configuration file contains an invalid line 'replication:

The error is preventing the mongodb to start.
Best regards

Hi @Timmi,
in my file it looks like this according this link https://rocket.chat/docs/installation/manual-installation/mongo-replicas/

echo -e "replication:\n  replSetName: \"rs01\"" | sudo tee -a /etc/mongod.conf

There is a file /etc/mongod.conf, I don’t have it, so I have changed name in a command for a mongodb.conf


Hi @zen,

as I said you need to fix your conf file as the replication is not supported by your MongoDB version.
Please post the complete content of the file.

Best regards

Hi @zen

you need to remove the last two lines of the file.
After that you should be able to start the db again:
systemctl start mongodb

If this is successful you can try to add this to the end of the file:
After that restart mongodb
systemctl restart mongodb

If succesfull continue with https://rocket.chat/docs/installation/manual-installation/mongo-replicas/

Best regards

Hi @Timmi,
it works, thank you very much for your help and time.
