Just installed MongoDB per WebFaction how-to page. When I point my browser to the app, I get this message.

You are trying to access MongoDB on the native driver port. 
For http diagnostic access, add 1000 to the port number

I have an index.html file installed there.

Any suggestions?

Can you provide more info on what you are trying to do? MongoDB isn't meant to be accessed via HTTP. It does have an HTTP admin interface, is that what you're trying to access?

@todork I get that errmsg (instead of index.html) when I point a browser at my domain. If I try to access the admin interface at mydomain:port I get a connection refused error.

If you've pointed the MongoDB app to a website in the control panel, requests to that site would be forwarded to the MongoDB on the port you've run it on. If you want your site to display the index.html instead, you shouldn't assign the MongoDB app to it, but a Static/PHP/CGI app instead.

Again, I'm still not sure what you're trying to achieve. Can you provide more information?
