Can't connect to Mongodb on VPS


I can’t connect to Mongodb on my VPS. It was working fine a month ago!

MongoDB shell version: 1.6.2
connecting to: admin
Sun Aug 26 04:50:23 Error: couldn’t connect to server} (anon):1137
exception: connect failed


I tried starting the mongod process using “sudo service mongodb start” but that doesn’t work either. (as in the “mongodb start” itself doesn’t work)


Contacted support. 5 hours later, they reset my MongoDB installation and the problem was resolved.
