Troubleshoot database problems

The following sections describe how to solve common database problems.

Database query errors

If you’re having issues with database queries, consider the following:

  • Confirm that the syntax query is valid by reviewing the key values.
  • Check for spaces in the key values.

If the query is for a database, test the SQL query directly using a tool such as SQL Plus for Oracle or SQL Server Management Studio to determine if the query returns a valid number value.

  1. Start a command prompt and run the following command to determine if the MongoDB port number is being used by another application.
    netstat -ano
