I’m trying to get FireWorks installed on a compute cluster and cannot connect to the test database in the installation instructions.
I am creating a virtual environment with no site packages and with Python version 2.7.11. Then I simply pip install FireWorks.
Creating the file with exactly the credentials in the installation instructions results in:
ValueError: FireWorks was not able to connect to MongoDB. Is the server running? The database file specified was my_launchpad_testing.yaml.
I am able to get FireWorks set up and working on other computers, such as my personal machine, with an identical procedure.
Where can I start to try to fix this?
