I started up a fresh nodejs install and attempted to start mongod but am unable to and keep receiving the following error:
Error parsing command line: unknown option small
try ‘mongod --help’ for more information
In the past i have never had to do anything except run the “mongod” command to turn it on, or --nojournal if i didnt have the space.
Now I am getting the above error and none of the documentation seems to provide a solution. I don’t understand what is different from the number of times i have started up mongod simply by running the command?
I did not follow the rules and ignored the “./” of the last step given by documentation so running ./mongod worked instantly, wasted 3.5 hours on this.
Questions still why did this change, i did not have to take these steps previously.
